R for Biochemists 101 – 2020
R for Biochemists 101 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. Dr Paul Brennan will reply to your comments and queries for six weeks. After this time, you’ll be able to still access the course, but the interaction with the course leader won’t be available.
