This introductory workshop provides a basic training in R for data analysis with a focus on biological applications. Participants will learn how to work with R using the graphical user interface (GUI) RStudio. Available methods for importing, inspecting and computing scientific data are covered. In particular, it will be shown how big data can be explored with pretty graphical visualizations and how these can be exported. At the end of the course, the participants will perform a case study and statistically analyse a real-life gene expression dataset.
