Data Analysis with R-Studio Basic Module 1*
Description: This workshop aims to introduce the R programming language and RStudio. R is one of the most popular open source languages for data analysis and statistics. The workshop will provide an overview of basic functions, data manipulations, and descriptive statistics. Participants will get hands-on experience with working with a simulated dataset. Furthermore, we will provide additional resources for the participants to advance their own R journey.
Time: 12:45-14:15

Data Analysis with R-Studio Basic Module 2*
Description: This workshop will continue where the R basics course 1 left off. The “tidyverse” package will be introduced. Participants will learn how to manipulate data with dplyr and make publishable graphs/figures with ggplot2 in R. Thereafter, we will dive into statistical analysis using linear and logistic regression. The theory of the workshop will be supported by hands-on exercises with a simulated dataset.
Time: 12:45-14:15

* Each module costs 10 euros and can be booked independently from the other depending on the pre-existing knowledge of the attendee.
