Course Description


Statistical analyses are regularly required for nearly every quantitative scientific study.  Although simple data analysis tools are tenable for small-scale analyses, more rigorous software can enhance analysis replicability, improve data management, and facilitate more advanced analysis techniques in addition to scaling up to larger datasets.  One such program, R is a free, open-source software that is standard for data analysis across numerous fields.  This course will provide an introduction for using R to perform statistical analyses.

Objectives
Upon completing the workshop, attendees will have the confidence, knowledge, and resources to

  1. Create R projects to organize data and code
  2. Write R scripts to perform full data analysis starting from raw data, including:
    • Importing, editing, cleaning, and summarizing data in R
    • Performing diagnostic tests, including making diagnostic plots
    • Conducting statistical analyses
    • Creating basic plots to demonstrate statistical findings
  3. Find and understand online resources to learn more about R functionalities

Target Audience
Researchers who understand statistical concepts and have perhaps conducted analyses using Excel, SPSS, or similar and/or have taken BIOF 097, but have little to no experience using R.
