Statistics and Data Analysis Using R is a hands-on introduction to the R statistical software suite for biomedical scientists. It is assumed that the student is familiar with the plots and statistical summaries that are most commonly used in biomedical papers, but no formal background in statistics or programming is necessary. The primary objective is learning to use R, but the course also emphasizes the standards of practice that programmers and data analysts have implemented to ensure transparency, accuracy and accountability. Students are required to have a laptop.
