PR STATISTICS ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT THROUGH THEIR FUNDING SCHEME THEY CAN OFFER 5 PART-FUNDED SCHOLARSHIPS FOR OUR UP-COMING COURSE

“Coding, data management, and Shiny applications using RStudio for evolutionary biologists and ecologists (CDSR01)"

SCHOLARSHIPS CONTRIBUTE TOWARDS TUITION FEES AND ACCOMMODATION WITH 5 ‘ALL INCLUSIVE PLACES’ AVAILABLE AT £490.00 (Fees have been subsidised by 35% from £755.00).

Applications should be sent to oliverhooker@prstatistics.com and contain the following. 1. Full name 2. Institute name 3. PhD subject title or Post doc research questions 4. Do you hold a funded position 5. 150 words why this course would be relevant to your research or how it would help.

Application deadline is Tuesday 17th April 2017

We still have ‘normal’ places available for anyone else interested.

Full course details are given below

http://www.prstatistics.com/course/coding-data-management-and-shiny-applications-using-rstudio-for-evolutionary-biologists-and-ecologists-cdsr01/

This course will run from 15th - 19th May at SCENE field station, Scotland.

The course will introduce programming logic using the R syntax. The participants will be able to solve problems involving heterogeneous biological datasets and the combined use of different statistical packages, so the advantages of learning programming skills can be demonstrated. The RMarkdown syntax will be used to illustrate the advantages of literate programming and the possibilities of code sharing and archiving. In the sequence, participants will learn how to design relational databases (RDB) which can be used to manage and analyse large biological datasets. They will learn the basics of the SQL language and how to use it with R with the package {RMySQL}.

To finalise, they will use the Shiny tool (R Studio) to build interactive applications to analyse and display data depending on user inputs. Throughout the course we will emphasise data, code and analyses best practices that could foster reproducibility and transparency in science, and the long-term availability of scientific data. At the end of the course the participants are expected to be able to develop small, tailored applications, to read and analyse datasets using a variety of statistics tools.

Monday 15th Module 1: Programming Logic R syntax (Variable types – operators – conditionals – loops – writing functions) Programming and commenting code with RMarkdown

Tuesday 16th Module 2: Data structures R syntax (arrays, lists, data frames, matrices) Data wrangling with {dplyr} and {tidyr}; the {ff} package and data tables for large datasets (e.g. transcriptomics; whole-genome data) Best practices of data acquisition, organization and storage

Wednesday 17th Module 3: Relational databases Introduction to the SQL language and MySQL (open-source RDB freeware) Accessing and analysing large datasets using the package {RMySQL} As an example, we will combine DNA sequence datasets with IUCN Red List data illustrate the use of RDB to biological datasets.

Thursday 18th Module 4: Introduction to Shiny (R Studio) Shiny – Server and user interface commands As an example we will use Shiny to develop a small application where users can select different species and genes and run/visualize phylogenetic trees using {ape} running in the background.

Friday 19th Module 5: Wrapping-up Development and presentation of individual projects combining data wrangling skills and user inputs using Shiny (R Studio)

I see that you are based in the UK. Any plans on doing a similar course(s) in Central Europe?
