This course is the follow-up course of the basic course on R.
This course can also be followed by participants who did not attend the previous course, but who have some basic R experience.




The Erasmus Postgraduate School Molecular Medicine has two main activities: the organization of education for postgraduate students; and the stimulation of cooperation between several departments with regards to translational research.

Together with the dept. of Bioinformatics, the school organizes this two days course on R.


R ( has become the 'lingua franca' of data analysis and statistical computing. Its great success is attributed to its free availability and the capability for a wide range of analysis and graphics.


During this course you'll learn to apply basic statistical methods and analyses using R. Participants of this course should have at least followed the previous R course, or have a basic knowledge of R as an object-oriented programming language.

This course will feature both practical sessions behind a computer and presentations.


This course will be held in computer room COO-6 at the Medical Faculty of the Erasmus MC. See the MolMed website for maps and travel directions:


Full participation in this two-days course is 0,7 ECTS.


Course registration fee is €300. See the detailed course program for more information on the discount options.
