Webinar: Introduction to R for Data Analysis
April 28, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 2:00 pm, repeating until April 29, 2020
The scripting language of R is considered one of the most powerful languages for quantitative analysis, statistics, and graphics. This workshop will help you get started with analyzing your datasets and creating graphs for visualization. We’ll do hands-on exercises to demystify data analysis using R. From our previous experience in teaching this workshop, we know that some of the folks register with an expectation to learn how to use ggplot2, seurat, dplyr, etc. but most registrants come absolutely uninitiated. This workshop is designed for those who have no background whatsoever in programming/R. We’ll not cover ggplot2, seurat, dplyr, etc. but some of these will be covered in our intermediate-level workshops.
The topics that we’ll cover are listed below.
- RStudio interface.
- Addition, subtraction, basic math operations.
- Assigning values to variables.
- Commenting in a script.
- Logical operators.
- Intro to functions and libraries.
- Reading data.
- Troubleshooting error messages.
- Exploring data. (Basic summaries such as mean, median, etc.)
- Selecting subsets of data.
- Plotting data.
- Data structures available in R.
No background in statistics or computing necessary. Bring your laptop with RStudio and R installed.
Please note: This workshop will be held over two days at 2:00-4:00pm on both Tuesday, April 28th & Wednesday, April 29th. Attendance in the first part on April 28th is mandatory to attend the second part on April 29th.
