Introduction to R
Introduction to R will introduce attendees to the R software environment, a powerful, popular and free statistical and graphical programming language. Participants will learn about the structure of the R language, how to add functionality through packages, and how to process data and generate tables, figure and reports using R.
During this course you will learn about;
- The RStudio integrated development environment
- The format of the R language including, variables, data structure and functions
- R packages and how to read and understand their documentation
- Importing and processing data within R
- The knitR package for writing reports
Introduction to R is designed for bench scientists, PhD students and early career postdoctoral researchers who are looking for analysis capabilities beyond those provided by Excel. No prior knowledge of R is required, but familiarity with the command-line interface will be useful. This workshop is only open to medical researchers in NSW or ACT based organisations.
