UCSF Mission Bay Campus Mission Hall, Room 1406 550- 16th Street San Francisco, CA 94158


The high-level language of R is considered one of the most powerful languages for quantitative analysis, statistics, and graphics. This workshop is designed for folks who have some experience in using R and are looking to take their R skills to the next level. We shall learn how to generate high-quality and publication-ready data visualizations using ggplot2. A beginner-level knowledge of R is required. Bring your laptop with R and RStudio installed.

About the organizer

The emerging field of precision medicine demands a new approach to research that harnesses the power of data science. This requires biomedical researchers and practicing clinicians with skills in quantitative and computer sciences as well as modern computing and data infrastructure to support relevant research activities and implement findings in clinical practice. The UCSF Bakar Computational Health Sciences Institute is working to build a foundation of faculty and knowledge assets in computational health sciences and bring together a community of thinkers interested in this emerging field. Our initiatives are focused on enhancing education and infrastructure as well as building community with the goal of advancing computational health sciences in research, practice, and education—in support of precision medicine for all.


Based in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood, the Gladstone Institutes is an independent state-of-the-art biomedical research institution that empowers its world-class scientists to find new pathways to cures.

At Gladstone, over 350 scientists and trainees use visionary science and technology in cardiovascular biology, immunology, neuroscience, and stem cell biology to overcome unsolved diseases. They are supported by cutting edge core facilities and essential administrative partners.
