Communicating data and results efficiently is a fundamental task for any scientist. While this information is mostly conveyed through graphics and tables, designing these is not a trivial task and most scientists have to learn this skills on the job.
During this course, we will present different ways for representing data, how to choose among them, why you should avoid using error bars, how to design efficient graphs, which tools to use (and which tools to avoid !), how to design graphs for specific media, good practices for plotting data, and common mistakes to avoid.
This course will also include practicals using the R statistical software; during these practicals, we will discuss and introduce the differents models for creating graphics in R (including base R and ggplot2).
