Course content: The course will provide a base level introduction to the R statistical software environment, which is a GNU public license alternative to tools like S, Matlab, SAS, etc. The participants will be able to use R to perform basic algebra and employ generic statistical methods as well as access utilities specifically designed for microarray analysis through the Bioconductor resource. No previous knowledge about R or other mathematical environments is required.
Course Material: The official Introduction to R which also exists as a pdf is freely available online. Although you're welcome, You do not need to read it beforehand. Rather, use it as a reference during the exercises.
