Basic hands-on course on R, given by Dr. Elizabeth McClellan and Dr. Karl Brand.

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 four-day course on R.

R (http://www.r-project.org/) 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.

This course is meant for for PhD-students and other researchers who are just starting to program in R. This course will feature both practical sessions behind a computer and presentations.

This course will be held in a computer room at the Medical Faculty of the Erasmus MC. See the MolMed website for maps and travel directions: https://www.molmed.nl/maps/maps.asp

Full participation in this four-day course is 1,4 ECTS.
