Introduction to R

Disclaimer: Everything that is being shown and discussed during the workshop is generic and not subject-specific. Please bear with me if the examples that I choose tend to be about sequence data processing.


The workshop will consist of 2 sessions: The first session is focused more on the first steps in R and getting familiar with how R understands data. The second session is about more advanced data handling and scripting. There is also the option to work together on your own data in break-out rooms. To accommodate all participant's availability, each session will be offered twice.
