Advanced R for Life Sciences

R is a language and computational environment for statistics, advanced data analysis, machine learning and visualization; it is the most widely used programming language in bioinformatics. Due to technological advances in molecular biology (genomics, large-scale systems biology) research in the life sciences is becoming increasingly data rich. The aim of this course is to provide students with a good understanding of how to use R for advanced data analyses. For this purpose participants will learn key concepts for writing advanced R code, Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to more proficiently use R for data analysis in life science research by applying loops, functions, control structures and create profound plots. Teaching and learning method: 20% lecture and 80% interactive Languages of instruction: English or German Target audience: PhD students, technicians and researchers Entrance qualifications: A basic understanding of R as shown by successful completion of the course “Introduction into R for Life Science Researchers”. Costs: 150 Euro (University)/ 300 Euro (Company) Registration: (deadline: March, 5th 2018) As the number of participants is limited (min. 3 and max. 8), please register early to confirm your seat!
