PLEASE NOTE The Bioinformatics Team are presently teaching as many courses live online, with tutors available to help you work through the course material on a personal copy of the course environment. We aim to simulate the classroom experience as closely as possible, with opportunities for one-to-one discussion with tutors and a focus on interactivity throughout.
This 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 manipulation, and ggplot for plotting. It will focus on entering and manipulating data in R and producing simple graphs.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are already comfortable working in R and using the tidyverse package, you might find that you can skip Friday’s training session. Please review the pre-requisites section below for further information.
Day 2-6 (half days) 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 practise 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).
