Harvard Chan Bioinformatics Core presents: Introduction to R

For Harvard researchers affiliated with Harvard Medical School labs on the Quad, and Dana Farber Harvard Cancer Center.

This workshop will introduce participants to the basics of using R, a simple programming environment that enables the effective handling of data, while providing excellent graphical support.

Participants will learn how to use R for:

• exploring basic data structures
• inspecting and wrangling data
• installing packages for data analysis
• making publication-quality plots with the ggplot2 package

This workshop will be held at Countway Library on April 28, May 2, 5, and 9 from 10 AM to Noon each day. More details, including eligibility criteria and the workshop description, are available on the registration page. This workshop does not require any prior programming knowledge, but it is a prerequisite for the upcoming bulk RNA-seq II and other advanced workshops.

Note: We will offer a RNASeq Differential Gene Expression workshop in May and registration for that will open in two weeks. If you’re interested in registering now for both the R and the Differential Gene Expression (RNA-seq II) workshops, Register here! (Note: signing up for both together offers a $10 savings.)

Please note the format of our Introduction to R workshop. Between the four meetings, we will be requiring workshop participants to spend between 2-3 hours on reading and doing exercises from selected lessons. The in-person sessions will focus on exercises and discussion and all are expected to participate. Please make sure you take the learner-centric workshop format into account when you sign up.
