Introduction to R for statistical analysis

This course introduces the basic features of the R programming language.

The main points covered are:

  • Basic elements such as vectors, matrices, ...
  • Functions, packages, loops, ...

In the end, there is a case study of statistical analysis using R that sums up all the concepts learnt during the course.

R is an essential language both at an academic level (writing a thesis, statistical analysis for papers or group projects) and at a professional level. We have used R for academic purposes, and we are happy to share what we learned with our colleagues.
