    Liverpool, United Kingdom

    R for beginners R is a programming language and free software environment for statistical computing and graphics supported by the R Foundation for Statistical Computing. This course covers: Day 1: Foundations of R: get familiar with R, R studio, operators, variables, functions, directories and the script editor Day 2: Visualisation in basic R (boxplots, scatterplots, line graphs and histograms) and ggplot2 (same types of plots and also manipulation of data for use within this package as well as simple linear regression) Day 3: Introduction to statistical analyses in R: univariate statistics (choosing the right test, checking data assumptions, calculating and extracting the values to report in publications) and Principal Component Analysis (calculation and visualisation with ggplot2) Extra materials: Introduction to the Tidyverse, Introduction to for loops All materials have been built using relevant life sciences/clinical examples. The course has been designed to introduce R from the very basics. Therefore applicants do not need any prior experience to attend, just the desire to learn R. Real life examples with bioinformatic applications are included. 2020-04-01 09:00:00 UTC 2020-04-03 17:00:00 UTC Computational Biology Facility University of Liverpool, Liverpool, United Kingdom University of Liverpool Liverpool Merseyside United Kingdom L69 3GH Computational biology Statistics and probability University of Liverpool Computational Biology Facility ( [] [] workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served R-programmingbiostatistics Statistics R programminglife sciences, bioinformaticsClinical Bioinformatics
  • Population genomics: Background, tools and programming

    1 - 8 April 2020

    Procida, Italy

    Population genomics: Background, tools and programming This EMBO Practical Course will cover coalescent theory, the effect of demography in space and time, genetic clustering, the detection and quantification of admixture and selection. Lectures on these topics will be complemented by hands-on computer practicals introducing a wide range of software packages, both in R and Python. This course is aimed at evolutionary biologists who already have basic bioinformatics skills. The main criterion for selection will be how much a candidate can benefit from the course. 2020-04-01 13:00:00 UTC 2020-04-08 15:30:00 UTC EMBO Via Principessa Margherita, 46, Procida, Italy Via Principessa Margherita, 46 Procida Città Metropolitana di Napoli Italy 80079 Population genomics [] [] Evolutionary BiologistsPhD studentsPost-Docs workshops_and_courses [] Population GenomicsGenetic DiversityGWASPopulation geneticsgenetic clustering
