Description:

This workshop will be a gentle introduction to the basics of R wherein every concept will be thoroughly explained and ample time will be allocated for attendees to explore the course content. The first day will involve familiarising with the R studio interface, data structures and data manipulation through dplyr and tidyverse packages. The second day will be introducing basic principles of data visualisation for scientific interpretation primarily through the ggplot2 suite.

  • $20 registration – Attendees who attend at least 50% of the workshop will be refunded the full amount.
  • Registration closes one day before the workshop, or when capacity is reached.
  • This workshop will run for 2 days. Please note that during the workshop, all important communications will be in the workshop slack channel.
