The course is aimed at biologists with a basic to moderate knowledge in
R. The course content is designed to bridge the gap between basic R
coding and more advanced statistical modelling. An introduction to
working with real-life data: data ‘wrangling’, visualisation,
graphing and analysis, including model selection and simplification,
mixed effects models, generalised linear models and non-linear models.
This five day course will consist of series of modules, each lasting
roughly half a day and comprises of a mixture of lectures and practicals
designed to either build required skills for future modules or to
perform a family of analyses that is frequently encountered in the
biological literature.
THIS COURSE WILL BE TAUGHT IN ENGLISH

Course Programme:

Sunday 23rd
Meet at Fuzhou airport or Fuzhou train station

Monday 24th
Module 1: Data manipulation using {tidyr} and {dplyr}
Module 2: Data visualization using {ggplot2}

Tuesday 25th
Module 3: Categorical predictors and the general linear model
Module 4: ANCOVA & selecting among non-nested models

Wednesday 26th
Module 5: Generalized linear models (Poisson and logistic regression)
Module 6: Making predictions using model coefficients ({broom} and
{visreg})

Thursday 27th
Module 7: Introduction to mixed effects models: random intercepts
Module 8: Random slope mixed effects models

Friday 28th
Module 9: Polynomial & mechanistic nonlinear models
Module 10: Combining advanced methods (nonlinear mixed models, GLMMs)


The course will consist of a mixture of lectures and hands-on
practical’s. Data sets for computer practical’s will be provided by
the instructors, but participants are welcome to bring their own data.

Assumed quantitative knowledge
A basic understanding of statistical concepts, including statistical
significance and hypothesis testing

Assumed computer background
Familiarity with R. Ability to import/export data, manipulate data
frames, fit basic statistical models & generate simple exploratory and
diagnostic plots. Relative newcomers to programming in R will be
provided (by the instructors) with some introductory exercises to
complete prior to the course. This will introduce some of the core
features of R and RStudio before the course starts.

Packages
We offer two packages
• COURSE ONLY – Includes lunch and refreshments.
• ALL INCLUSIVE – Includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, refreshments
and accommodation. Accommodation is either single or twin single sex
en-suite rooms. Arrival Sunday 23rd April and departure Friday 28th
April PM.
