Description: This workshop is for students, researchers, and clinicians keen to learn the R programming language and data analysis relevant to biomedicine. The course is designed to be practical and comprehensive with no specific background requirements. We will focus on fundamentals of data analysis with examples of real-life data in biomedicine, such as gene expression. By the end of the course, participants will be familiar with the essentials of data analysis, including statistical tests, linear regression, principal component analysis, clustering and data visualization. The workshop will be in presence and therefore each participant should bring their own laptop (no ipads).
