The goal of this two-days workshop is to initiate wet-lab scientists to reproducible data analysis with R. The “Data organisation in spreadsheets” section will focus on tabular data structure and management. We will then introduce OpenRefine and how it can be used for initial data exploration and cleaning.
The biggest part of the workshop will focus on R. We will start with a general presentation to the RStudio software, a popular interface and editor for R, will introduce the basics of R, and then move on to analysing data in tabular format, as defined in the first section. We will focus on dplyr and ggplot2, two widely used packages for data manipulation and analysis, and data visualisation.
This workshop is organised with the support and in collaboration with UCLouvain, VIB Bioinformatics Core and ELIXIR Belgium.
