Aim and Scope
The course will give you a practical introduction to using R. Focusing on real world problems and solutions rather than theory, it aims to give you a launch pad to start using R in your everyday work. The course is aimed to give you a solid basis for using R in your everyday scientific endavours even if you have no previous knowledge of R or any other programming language. After completing the course, you will be able to:
- exchange data between R and spreadsheet programs such as Excel
- manipulate and display the data
- generate various types of plots
- run simple statistical analysis (t test, non-parametric tests, basic ANOVA, basic linear regression) - create reports from your analysis in a number of formats
Most importantly, you will learn from day 1 what the advantages of using a programming language for your data analysis are as well as where the pitfalls and potential problems lie.
The course will be taught by Prof. Dieter Beule (Translational Bioinformatics), Dr. Manuela Benary (Bioinformatician), and Dr. January Weiner (Computational Biologist).
