Aims

The aim of this online workshop is to provide an up-to-date practical approach to data analysis techniques and statistics. Focus will be laid on direct applications and examples. Doctoral candidates will learn to adapt the concepts to their own research projects.

 

Topics

  • Use R and RStudio to solve statistical problems
  • Create and handle vectors and data frames
  • Import and export csv files
  • Understand why packages are helpful
  • Visualize data (plots)
  • Describe your data using statistics
  • Enhance R-programming efficiency
 

Procedure

The workshop begins with an introduction to R and RStudio. Based on practical examples the statistics program RStudio will be used to visualize and analyze the data, the results will be displayed using R as well. Basic programming steps will be explained, data processing will be exercised and statistical methods discussed.  Based on the needs and presentations of the participants, individual topics can be addressed.

 

Requirements

Participants are required to give a short presentation of their research project and how they intend to use R (max. 3 minutes). You need to have your own laptop for the workshop and have R and RStudio preinstalled. If you have problems installing R or RStudio, please contact in advance for assistance.
