Introduction to R

Event Name Introduction to R
Start Date 15 Apr 2019 10:00 AM
End Date 15 Apr 2019 5:00 PM
Duration 7 hours

This foundational-level hands-on workshop introduces the basics of working with data using the R language. R provides many ways to query, explore, and visualize data, make models from data, and perform statistical tests. By using a computer language, R can do a greater range of things than can be done with a spreadsheet or a point and click statistics application. The R commands used to analyse data document all of the steps performed, and also make it easy to make changes and then re-run an analysis.

Attendees will gain hands-on experience writing commands in R to perform common tasks, an understanding of the types of data R can manipulate, and how to use the popular "Tidyverse" collection of R packages.This workshop provides necessary background for our more advanced workshops in R, which cover topics such as programming, communicating results using interactive web-apps, using linear models, and working with biological data using Bioconductor. Attendees will need to bring a laptop.

The only required software is a web browser. We will be using RStudio over the web (R and RStudio are also freely available to install on your own computer).

Location: Teaching Room 1, Caulfield Library Building A
