The Introduction to R workshops will teach you how to get started with the statistical software R. The course will be data centric, with lots of different data sets that illustrate examples of the different techniques used for different problems.The course will be a mix of instruction and follow-up exercises. It will be held in a computer lab but you are encouraged to bring your own laptops, with software already loaded. A list of software will be available at this site several days prior to the workshop.
