This course is designed for the Yale University Computational Biology & Bioinformatics (CBB) program's Jamboree. It provides a quick introduction to basic R commands while assuming familiarity with programming concepts. The majority of the course focuses on tidy data analysis using tidyr/dplyr and visualization using ggplot2
In this chapter, based on DataCamp's Intro To R course, you will take your first steps with R. You will learn how to use the console as a calculator and how to assign variables. You will also get to know the basic data types in R. Let's get started!
In this chapter, you will learn some of the fundamentals of taking raw data and cleaning it to form tidy data, the fundamental currency of data science and visualization tools such as ggplot2.
From tidy data comes great visualization - learn how to visualize your data using the grammer of graphics.
In this chapter, you will combine what you learned in the first three chapters to read in, tidy, and visualize gene expression data. Let's get started!
