With an ever-expanding number of users, R is one of the leading programming languages used worldwide. Its popular use in statistics and data science is mainly due to the wide range of open source packages that are offered for a wide range of applications, including Omics-related analysis and visualization of high-throughput datasets. This course will take participants to their first steps in R and RStudio environments, by presenting them the core fundamentals of R and RStudio. Participants are expected to use it interactively to explore, analyse and visually interpret a set of model high-throughput datasets. The use of R as a programming language will be partially covered in this course and during the upcoming NGS-RNASeq course, and should be envisioned as a subsequent best practice that would improve participants daily research.

This course is restricted to the young researchers previously selected from IPT's research labs and to 6 candidates from the Institut Pasteur International Network
