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
