Course description:

The R crash course is an introductory course and no previous knowledge about programming is necessary for participation. It  extends over five days, with 3-4 hours per day. You will learn how to get started with R, how to make small useful programs, how to analyze your data in reproducible ways, how to visualize your dataset with beautiful plots and how to take advantage of thousands of R packages. The course is biology-oriented, and will introduce you to the wonders of Bioconductor. We will also expect you to complete a few homework assignments to practice and hone your skills. The R crash course is adapted from Software Carpentry workshops, and we expect a high level of interaction and hands-on exercises.

 

Prerequisites:

- Bring your own laptop (power supply will be provided).

- Install R (can be downloaded here) and Rstudio (an environment for developing using R, download here).
