WORKSHOP: R: fundamental skills for biologists https://dresa.org.au/materials/workshop-r-fundamental-skills-for-biologists-81aa00db-63ad-4962-a7ac-b885bf9f676b This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons workshop ‘R: fundamental skills for biologists’. This workshop took place over four, three-hour sessions on 1, 8, 15 and 22 June 2022.   Event description Biologists need data analysis skills to be able to interpret, visualise and communicate their research results. While Excel can cover some data analysis needs, there is a better choice, particularly for large and complex datasets.  R is a free, open-source software and programming language that enables data exploration, statistical analysis, visualisation and more. The large variety of R packages available for analysing biological data make it a robust and flexible option for data of all shapes and sizes.  Getting started can be a little daunting for those without a background in statistics and programming. In this workshop we will equip you with the foundations for getting the most out of R and RStudio, an interactive way of structuring and keeping track of your work in R. Using biological data from a model of influenza infection, you will learn how to efficiently and reproducibly organise, read, wrangle, analyse, visualise and generate reports from your data in R. Topics covered in this workshop include: Spreadsheets, organising data and first steps with R Manipulating and analysing data with dplyr Data visualisation Summarized experiments and getting started with Bioconductor   This workshop is presented by the Australian BioCommons and Saskia Freytag from WEHI  with the assistance of a network of facilitators from the national Bioinformatics Training Cooperative.

NCI training strategy and impact story to address pressing needs from user community https://dresa.org.au/materials/nci-training-strategy-and-impact-story-to-address-pressing-needs-from-user-community-70a328d3-a1e1-45ce-bac0-d8b896db4ca0 This presentation looks at how NCI provides training opportunities, supporting users to develop their digital skills with the aim of underpinning the integrity of research. NCI's new training strategy is outlined along with how training is evaluated and impact is measured. Through extensive internal polling the training team have identified a number of gaps. Based on the gaps an end-to-end learning journey has been created. The presentation also provides an overview of immediate, middle term and community impacts of training at NCI.
