With the raise of bioinformatic and ecological tools, knowing some degree of programming languages is essential for any researcher in life sciences. R, a programming language and environment for statistical computing and graphics, is heavily used in biological and ecological sciences, and therefore, a must have in any researcher portfolio.
We welcome everyone to apply to the R SESSIONS. It consists in different short modules (sessions) focusing on a topic related with R. The sessions have the objective of introducing a given topic (materials will be provided for further study) and will be very practical with minimal focus on theory. Each participant can attend one or more sessions depending on what they wish to learn. There is a limit of 15 participants per session.
At the moment, 12 sessions are planned, but more sessions can be opened in the future. The dates and details of each session will be announced in due time.
Program of the sessions: PROGRAM
R Sessions will occur at the 5th floor of IBS (Institute of Science and Innovation for Sustainability) in Campus Gualtar, University of Minho, Braga.
If interested, please send email to Pedro Vieira (firstname.lastname@example.org).
No prior knowledge of R is necessary to attend sessions 1 and 2, but for the remaining sessions, basic R knowledge is required.
All participants must bring their own laptop to the sessions with R and R studio installed.
R Sessions are supported by DataCamp, the most intuitive and easy to use learning platform to learn R. With the combination of short expert videos and hands-on-the-keyboard exercises, take over 100+ courses on different topics to improve your R knowledge.
