Workshop Overview

The CFAR Biostatistics and Computational Biology Core is running two workshops for Duke researchers teaching the use of the R statistical programming language for basic data analysis. The course is designed for people trained in biology, and no previous programming or statistical experience is necessary.

Workshop 1 will cover the use of RStudio and introduce basic data manipulation, analysis and visualization. Workshop 2 will cover further statistical inference techniques (checking model assumptions, non-parametric tests, multiple comparisons, power and sample size calculations) as well as an introduction to programming in R.


Pre-requisites

Participants must provide their own laptops (Windows, Mac, or Linux). Prior to the workshop, please install R version 3.0.1 as well as RStudio version 0.97.551. We strongly recommend you read this (very) short introduction to R before the workshop. Do not worry if it is confusing, we will cover all the topics in the workshop.

You Must Pre-Register

Acceptance is first-come first-serve, but CFAR investigators and their trainees will have priority. Preference will be given to participants who can attend both workshops.

Please note that lunch is not provided.
