Event Name Introduction to R at the Alfred November
Start Date 15th Nov 2018 10:00am
End Date 15th Nov 2018 5:00pm
Duration 7 hours
Description

Monash Data Fluency and Monash Bioinformatics Platform want to improve research capabilities across the Monash community. To do this, a foundation level of programming expertise amongst as many researchers as possible is an important step forward. The platforms will then be available to facilitate this work as well as develop more advanced bioinformatic projects with our researchers.

The workshop will be taught in a similar style to Software Carpentry workshops. Software Carpentry's mission is to help scientists and engineers get more research done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic lab skills for scientific computing.

This workshop will teach the fundamentals of R. You will learn to quickly visualise and summarise data from experiments involving multiple experimental factors and measurements.

Who: The course is aimed at graduate students and other researchers. Beginners to R are welcome! You don't need to have any previous knowledge of the tools that will be presented at the workshop.

Setup Requirements: Participants must bring their own laptop (Windows, Mac, Linux) and have internet access (EDUROAM Network). No software installation required, just a web browser. Tools and data will be provided on the day.

Bookings open on Thursday 1 November.
