This course will guide participants towards a reproducible research workflow supported by R. It will provide participants with knowledge on 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 four 4 h hands-on sessions.

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