Description

Day 2: Best Practices in R

The Monash Bioinformatics Platform want to improve research capabilities across the Monash community. To do this, a foundation level of programming expertise amongst as many researchers as possible is an important step forward. The platform will then be available to facilitate this work as well as develop more advanced bioinformatic projects with our researchers.

The workshop will be taught in a similar style to Software Carpentry workshops. Software Carpentry's mission is to help scientists and engineers get more research done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic lab skills for scientific computing.

For more information on what we teach and why, please see the paper "Best Practices for Scientific Computing".

This workshop will cover more topics on the current state of the art in R: automating repetitive computations, "tidying" your data so that it is fast and easy to visualize and ask questions of it, and presenting data interactively.

Who: The course is aimed at graduate students and other researchers. This course is suitable to those comfortable with the basics of the R programming language OR have attended the day 1 workshop.

Setup Requirements: Participants must bring their own laptop (Windows, Mac, Linux). No software installation required. Tools and data will be provided on the day.

Contact: Please email adele.barugahare@monash.edu for more information.
