Getting started with R
When: 18-22 June 2018
Instructor: Dr. Alexandre Courtiol (Reearcher at the IZW, Berlin).
R is extremely powerful, free of charge and open source. Despite these benefits, many avoid R, or struggle with it, as writing computer code to do any operation -- a requirement in R -- is at first both difficult and intimidating.
This course aims at overcoming those challenges by providing solid basics in R. At the end of the course, participants should feel much more at ease writing a computer script in the R language which covers the entire spectrum of a statistical analysis: reading data, editing them, plotting them, and analysing them.
This course is aimed at scientists from quantitative sciences (e.g. biology, epidemiology, psychology...). It has been created with biologists in mind but it should accommodate scientists from other disciplines. No previous experience with R is required. Participants should have a basic familiarity with statistical terms and concepts.
