This 4-days bootcamp provides an in depth look at statistical analyses using R.
Day 1 aims to introduce R as a tool for statistics and graphics, with the main aim being to become comfortable with the R environment. As well as introducing core R language concepts, this course also provides the basics of using the Tidyverse for data maniupulation, and ggplot for plotting. It will focus on entering and manipulating data in R and producing simple graphs.
Day 2-4 will focus on the statistical possibilities of R, covering from experimental design to analysis of quantitative and qualitative data. Ample time will be given to participants to practice different type of analysis and interact with the trainers to discuss their statistical problems.
This event is organized in collaboration with the Babraham Institutes's Bioinformatics Group and it is supported by the BBSRC Strategic Training Awards for Research Skills (STARS) grant (BB/P022766/1).
The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.
