In this course, you learn how to use R to load, transform, explore and visualize data. The course also covers the basic concepts in data visualization and a suite of different chart types and tricks to make appealing and informative-rich plots using `ggplot2`.
This workshop is aimed at researchers and technical workers with a background in any data-related field. In general, no programming experience is needed. The course teaches all relevant steps to load, transform and visualize the data. However, basic knowledge of R is beneficial.
After completing the workshop, students should be in a position to:
know and apply the principles of good data visualization such as the right choice of colors and chart types
load and transform data in R using `tidyverse`
understand the layered structure of `ggplot2`
visualize the data in multiple ways using `ggplot2`
create publication quality and easy understandable figures
