Course Description
All participants will receive a certificate of participation. PrerequisitesWe will use R 2.9.1 and have provided an installation guide to ease the installation.The participants are expected to have prior experience with R and statistics in general, and an interest in the biological questions. To be more specific, you are required to know how to use R for standard statistical analyzes such as doing a ttest or a linear regression, and you should know about the fundamental data structures such as vectors, lists and data frames. The participants are also expected to bring their own laptop for the exercises. We require that all participants prior to the course install the latest version of R and the latest version of Bioconductor (which releases will be announced on this web page when settled). The precise details for the required installation of R and the installation of required additional packages will be provided. ProgramProgram:All days are 9.0017.00, but it is possible that we will end a little earlier some of the days. Lunch is 12.30  13.30. Every day will include combinations of lectures and computer labs. Both lectures and exercises take place in room 4024 (we also have room 405 available).
