R Intro Training - Virtual (11/30, 12/7)

November 30, 2022 9:00 am to December 7, 2022 12:00 pm
Virtual Teams Meeting

R has been really popular in recent years - as a matter of fact, the fastest-growing language - not only because of its statistical capability but also because of its powerful ability to manipulate data in a relatively easy and fast manner. In addition, it can produce publication-ready plots with just a few lines of code.

This training course targets research scientists who have no or little knowledge of R (if you have used R before, please do not sign up for this session). This hands-on training will provide many examples and exercises. Below are the topics that we will study.
