Scientific data is being generated at an unprecedented scale. Making sense of the data obtained from different scientific experiments is a big challenge.
This course is designed for those with interest in data analysis and data exploration, in particular for biological data. It provides an introduction to the R system. R is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics. The course then follows with the discussion of different approaches to summarize and visualize datasets, perform statistical tests and learn patterns from the data including the application of classical and state-of-the-art methods.
This is a hands-on course where several real life datasets will be explored with special focus on gene expression analysis and metabolomics. Participants are welcome to bring their own datasets for an initial exploratory analysis and discussion.
No prior programming experience is required but participants should be eager to learn and explore the potential of the R system.
Each participant should bring a laptop.
