The course is aimed at biologists with no experience using the software
R and no understanding or exposure to statistics. The course will
consist of a series of 10 modules each lasting roughly half a day, and
designed to build required skills for subsequent modules and more
advanced courses. At its conclusion, participants will have acquired
basic skills in coding with R, and will be able to perform and interpret
simple analyses, and critically evaluate similar analyses from the
scientific literature and technical reports.

THIS COURSE WILL BE TAUGHT IN ENGLISH

Course Programme:

Sunday 16th Meet at Fuzhou airport or Fuzhou train station

Monday 17th
Module 1: Introduction to coding in the R language
Module 2: Data visualization in the R {graphics} package

Tuesday 18th
Module 3: Probability theory and distributions
Module 4: Advanced programming features in R

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
No quantitative understanding of statistics is required.

Assumed computer background
No experience in the software R is required but some computer experience
is preferred.
