Plotting complex figures with R

This course is a comprehensive guide to the use of the built in R plotting functionality to construct everything from customised simple plots to complex multi-layered figures. It follows on from the material in our introductory R course and participants are expected to have a basic understanding of R - enough to load and do basic manipulation of datasets.
