Biochemical Society Training Course

R for Biochemists 101, the first Biochemical Society online training course, aims to equip early career researchers with the information, tools and techniques to use R. It is suited to beginners that want to use the programming software but have little or no experience. 
The course will focus on getting data in R, manipulating and visualizing them using various methods. Each module will use a biochemical experiment and data as a starting point.
The course is divided in 5 modules:
-          Draw a protein standard curve using base R and ggplot2
-          Extracting data from objects
-          Drawing an enzyme kinetics plot
-          Customizing and reusing plots with R
-          Getting your data into R for exploration

The estimated time of completion for each module is one hour, however participants will be able to learn at their own pace and will benefit from the interaction with the course lead educator and other fellow participants.
