The CIDD Graduate Student Association will be offering its wildly successful R basics seminar again this year!
Topics to be covered include:
- Part 1: how R thinks, basic commands, using built-in functions, vectors and sequences, reading in data, and basic plotting
- Part 2: advanced plotting, writing loops, writing functions
Part 1 will be held this Thursday, 11/21/2013 from 2:30 pm-4:30 pm in W-201 MSC. (Part 2 is TBA).
Please RSVP here to reserve your seat and to get on the email list for class materials. **Note that there are two parts; beginners should plan to attend both. If you’re an intermediate R user and would prefer to attend Part 2 only, let us know when you RSVP and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.**
About R: R is a powerful, open-source statistical programming language that offers more flexibility than many standard statistics packages (http://www.r-project.org/). If you’ve been wanting to try out this language but haven’t known where to start, this is the seminar for you.
About the instructor: Lindsay Beck-Johnson is a newly minted PhD in the Bjornstad lab and uses R on a daily basis. She developed and taught the original CGSA R basics seminar two years ago and led the lab section of Dr. Bjornstad’s R-based Introduction to Population Dynamics course (Ent 420) in fall of 2011.
