About the Event

General Info:

This is a hands-on course on introduction to R. It would be beneficial for researchers, developers and analysts who want to learn R. The application deadline for this course is 15th of January 2020.

Course structure:

The course is broken down into 2 days. First day will be dedicated to programming concepts in R such as data structures. The second day is dedicated to visualization. We will be using data sets from genomics to illustrate the techniques. However, the techniques we will cover are applicable to any high dimensional data set. 


This course is designed for participants who are not total beginners. We expect applicants to expect at least to finish an online tutorial in R. Due to condensed nature of the course, total beginners to R may find it difficult to follow. The participants are expected to bring their own laptops. The datasets and software (mainly R and RStudio) to be installed will be communicated to the participants in advance. 

About the Instructor(s):

The course will be conducted by Altuna Akalin and his team. The instructors have decades of experience in data analysis for genomics. They are developers multiple R/Bioconductor packages.


The cost of the course is 575 Euros. The accepted participants will receive additional information about the payment details.

We look forward to hearing from you!
