This course provides an introduction to the statistical computing language R for graduate students with no prior background in R or programming. By the end of this course students will be able to write R scripts that read, store, and manipulate data, perform basic statistical analyses, produce basic graphics, and fit simple linear models. Basic programming concepts such as structured and object oriented programming, conditionals, and debugging will also be discussed.
Course handouts and lectures. No required textbook, but students may find it useful to borrow a copy of “Getting started with R: an introduction for biologists” by Beckerman and Petchey.
