Linear Models in R Workshop
|Event Name||Linear Models in R Workshop|
|Start Date||25th Oct 2018 11:00am|
|End Date||25th Oct 2018 4:00pm|
This is an introduction to using linear models in R. Linear models are of very general use in statistics, and an important building block in R. Applications include fitting lines and curves to data, making predictions based on a set of predictor variables, performing t tests and analysis of variance tests and calculating confidence intervals on quantities of interest. The mechanics of working with linear models in R is foundational to further statistical and machine learning methods including, as a very incomplete list, logistic regression, survival analysis, mixed models, and differential gene expression analysis.
This 3 hour workshop will consist of a modest amount of theoretical presentation, emphasising geometric intuition rather than maths, and hands on use of R.
