Event description

Description

Your trainer for this workshop is Lucy Liu from Research Platform Services.

This workshop is being held on Wednesday the 25th of July from 9am-5pm.

About this Event:

The goal of this workshop is to teach novice programmers to use R for data analysis. R is a programming language specifically designed for statistical analysis, is free and open source and is known for its array of third-party packages. It is thus commonly used in many scientific disciplines for data analysis. The emphasis of these materials is to give attendees without programming experience a strong foundation in the fundamentals of R, and to teach them how to use the packages from Tidyverse to import, manipulate and visualise data.

What will be covered:

Basics of R and R/Studio
How to import data into R
How to manipulate data
How to make graphs using ggplot2

Please note that we will not be covering conditionals (if statements), for loops and writing functions.

Note that this workshop will focus on teaching the fundamentals of the programming language R, and will not teach statistical analysis. If you would like help with your statistical analysis, you can contact the Statistical Consulting Centre for one-on-one consultations.

A variety of third party packages are used throughout this workshop. These are not necessarily the best, nor are they comprehensive, but they are packages we find useful, and have been chosen primarily for their usability.
