This practical course introduces you to R, one of the most powerful tools for statistical computing.

Workshop Description

R is a free and extremely powerful language and software environment for statistical computing, data analysis, and graphics. This course is designed for those who have no experience with R, but have a basic understanding of statistics. Those without this knowledge are encouraged to attend the Introductory Statistics course first.

Outline

  • Introduction to R: How to install R on your computer; basic R commands, how to use and understand the R help pages.
  • Data: Reading in data and data manipulation; summarising data; basic statistical analysis and fitting linear models.
  • Graphics and output: Basic plotting commands and how to customise your plots; how to export your plots and output in a user-friendly format.
  • Functions: Writing simple functions and flow control structures.

The course will involve practical examples that participants can work through. Each participant must bring their own laptop with R installed. One week before the course we will send you instructions on how to install R and any associated packages required for the course. If you do not have access to a laptop please contact us as we may be able to provide one for you.
