PROGRAMMING WITH R

GET THE COMPUTER TO DO THE HARD WORK: AUTOMATE YOUR ANALYSIS

This is a one day intensive course on R. The course will be a mixture of lectures and computer practicals. The main focus of the course is R programming techniques, such as functions, for loops and conditional expressions.


The course follows on from the Introduction to R course. It is assumed that all students have attended this course (or have equivalent skills). This course is suitable to a wide range of applicants e.g., biologists, statisticians, engineers, students.

COURSE OUTLINE

  • Conditionals: using if and else statements in R
  • Functions: what is function is, how are they used, and how can we construct our own functions.
  • Looping in R: an introduction to the concept of looping in R. In particular for and while loops.
  • The apply functions: apply, tapply and other members of the apply family.

COURSE STRUCTURE

This course will be structured as follows:

  • 9:00 – 9:15: Registration and coffee
  • 9:15 – 10:45: Lecture
  • 10:45 – 11:15: Coffee break
  • 11:00 – 12:15: Practical 1
  • 12:15 – 1:15: Lunch (not provided)
  • 1:15 – 2:15: Lecture
  • 2:15 – 4:30: Practical 2 (with a coffee break)

These times are intended to give a flavour of how the course is run and are subject to change.

COMMENTS FROM PREVIOUS COURSES

  • We started from the beginning and achieved a lot by the end. I'm not scared of R any more. It was actually fun!
  • You cover all the aspects that we need to learn to get started.
