Description:

Data analysis skills are now central to most biological experiments. While Excel can cover some of your data analysis needs, it is not always the best choice, particularly for large and complex datasets.

R is an open-source software and programming language that enables data exploration, statistical analysis visualisation and more. While it is the tool of choice for data analysis, getting started can be a little daunting for those without a background in statistics.

In this webinar Saskia Freytag, an R user with over a decade of experience and member of the Bioconductor Community Advisory Board, will walk you through their hints and tips for getting started with R and data analysis. She’ll cover topics like R Studio and why you need it, where to get help, basic data manipulation, visualisations and extending R with libraries. The webinar will be followed by a short Q&A session.
