One day course by Martin Law, Kirsty Rhodes & Sean Yiu – MRC Biostatistics Unit
New course dates to be announced soon
Seminar rooms, Institute of public health, Forvie Site, adjacent to Addenbrooke’s Hospital
R is a free, popular language and environment that allows powerful and fast manipulation of data, offering many statistical and graphical options.
This course aims to introduce R as a tool for statistics and graphics, with the main aim being to become comfortable with the R environment. It will focus on entering and manipulating data in R and producing simple graphs. A few functions for basic statistics will be briefly introduced, but statistical functions will not be covered in detail.
At the end of the course, you are welcome to bring in your own data and problems for an ‘advisory’ session on analysis.
No experience with R or any other statistical software is required.
Knowledge of a basic course in statistics would be beneficial, but not necessary.
Please bring your own laptop and install R (http://cran.rstudio.com/ )and Rstudio (https://www.rstudio.com/products/rstudio/download/) for practicals.
