**Background**

Data is everywhere. Every biologist has some kind of data. Data can be modeled, managed, transformed, analyzed, mined, explored and visualized using several different methods and tools. But, statistical methods are the most popular way to analyze data. And, R is the popular platform to perform statistical analysis.

Simultaneous access to two screens is highly recommended for adequate learning experience. Examples include two laptops, one computer with two screens, one laptop and one tablet, etc.

**Objectives**

This Hands-on training will help participants to learn to perform basic statistical analysis using the R platform. First, participants will learn to use the R and RStudio software platforms. Then, with a short introduction to basic statistical concepts, participants will do hands-on exercises to perform basic statistical analysis using the R platform.
