R introduction, data-type, structure
This workshop is primarily for Master or Doctorate students who are new to the world of “R”, but are interested to use this in their statistical analyses.

Scientific communities are generating a massive amount of data with enormous complexity, and need sophisticated statistical algorithms, graphics libraries and data mining techniques to effectively analyze their datasets. Moreover, the scientific community required an open-source framework under which a collection of tools could be created and shared by all for reuse freely. The R statistical package created in the early '90s is a programming language as well as a software environment for statistical computing with excellent libraries for statistical analyses, graphics and data mining.
R is freely available for download and designed to be highly extendable through well-documented libraries/packages, which are accessible for download and installation from R. R has a large and constantly expanding user base among researchers and nowadays it is very common to submit R scripts while publications for analyses reproducibility. However, R is not principally GUI driven and we may have to write a code to execute specific functions. For this, we need formal and basic learning of the R language and its data structures.
The goal of this workshop is
The following topics will be covered in this workshop.
Please ensure that your laptop has R installed. instruction will be sent prior to the workshop. Since it is an open source platform therefore R 4.0.3 can be installed following this website (https://www.r-project.org/ and https://cloud.r-project.org/).
In the course we will use R-studio 1.4.1103 (free version and more user friendly) that require R 4.0.3 to be installed on the laptop. Follow the link to install R-studio program.
For assistance, please contact the IT Specialist in your college or UAEU Helpdesk (7136111 or firstname.lastname@example.org)
This workshop is only available to those who registered in February 2021.
