Introduction to R

R is a programming language and software environment for carrying out computations, manipulating and analyzing data, and creating various types of plots and graphics. R has become the ‘lingua franca of statistics’ and the software of choice for analyzing data in various disciplines. However, for many researchers, getting up and running with R remains a hurdle due to the command-driven nature of the software. The purpose of this course is to lay the necessary foundation for becoming a fully proficient R user.

Target audience:
The course is aimed at researchers, (Master and PhD level) students, data analysts/scientist, and essentially anybody interested in learning how to work with R.
