A gentle introduction to R – how to load in data and produce summary statistics
Following the BRC Bioinformatics seminar on Tuesday 30th October we will have the first in a series of tutorials on data analysis. In this first tutorial we will demonstrate how to load data into R and then show how to generate some basic summary statistics. A key component of the tutorial will be the opportunity for you to bring your datasets (if you have them), install R and start to examine your data in R. We will end by explaining what analyses you can do in R and taking feedback on other topics to cover in these tutorials.
The tutorial will cover:
- Installing R and R packages
- Loading data into R
- From Excel, other statistics packages
- Formatting problems that prevent loading data into R
- Formatting problems that cause problems in analysis
- Ideal formatting for collaboration with BRC Bioinformatics group
- Summary statistics
- What data is loaded
- Mean and standard deviations
- T-tests and correlations
- Basic plotting
- scatter plots with smoothed curves
- histograms and QQ plots
- Problem solving
- Bring your own data! We’ll help you to load it into R and do some basic analyses.
- Quick look at what types of analysis you can do in R
