June 14, 2013
Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Short Course
Presented by Les Klimczak
Time: 1:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Room: NIEHS Rall 101A
Abstract: This course is targeted toward biologists who have achieved high proficiency in Excel and are facing its limitations with regard to automatic processing and analysis of large-scale datasets. The R programming language will be introduced as a more powerful alternative with emphasis on explaining the distinctions of operating in a command-driven environment. Basic data processing and analysis steps in R will be presented in comparison with their equivalents in Excel. Programmatic generation of graphs in R will be introduced as well.
