Date: Thursday, March 1, 2012, 01:00 pm - 04:00 pm
Location: 575 Walter
Instructor(s): Haoyu Yu, MSI

This tutorial will demonstrate how to log in to MSIs computers to get started with R and how to read and manipulate data in the R environment. In addition, attendees will learn how to perform basic statistical analysis in R and produce graphics. R runs on a wide variety of UNIX platforms, Windows and MacOS. It is also available on most of the computers at MSI, including supercomputers, providing an ideal platform for long run-time and/or large memory R applications. This tutorial is a hands-on tutorial intended for those with a very basic knowledge of R acquired either from the preceding tutorial in this series or from other sources. An additional session of this tutorial will be offered if the first session fills up and there is sufficient demand for a second session.
