Revision as of 00:28, 24 August 2007



Taught in the context of biological research, this course helps biologists learn how to use the statistical scripting language R for data analysis. Unlike Bioinformatics Organization course MA101A (Biostatistics with R, Part 1), this course focuses on the syntax and functionality of the language R and may be used in preparation for MA101A. Armed with some knowledge and hands-on experience with a programming or scripting language, scientists taking a CS101 course at Bioinformatics.Org will be able to perform basic software development tasks and phrase research questions in the context of the language. As a result, they will be able to appreciate and use computers better in their organization and communicate better with their IT group.
