This course will guide participants towards a reproducible research workflow supported by R. It will provide participants with knowledge how to prepare their data and analyses so that other researchers can understand (and eventually reproduce) how figures and statistical tests were created stepwise from the raw data.

We will use R (and RStudio) as interpreted programming language. The course will blend on-line lessons on DataCamp and custom made exercises with weekly 2 h hands on sessions.

This course is generously supported by data camp by providing free access to online learning material for R for our course.
