One day course by Martin Law & Francesca Gasparoni – MRC Biostatistics Unit
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.
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.
