Introduction to R programming for life-scientists

R is widely used for analysis of biological data sets. However, R is complex and takes experience to use effectively. Dr Toryn Poolman from UCL will take us through some basic functions of R that will be useful to all life scientists. Some prior experience with R is useful but not essential.

Toryn will use R to take us through a real data set from his own research. This workshop will cover:

  • Statistical analysis of a real-life data set
  • Creating a multi-panel figure
  • Adding in stats to the figure
  • Annotating graphs using R markdown
