Additional information

In this course you will learn how to clean up, manipulate and visualise your data using the efficient workflows available in RStudio and the tidyverse packages. These central data science skills are usually also called data wrangling and exploratory data analysis.

Knowledge of basic R programming is assumed: you can get to the expected level e.g. by working through the "Introduction to Base R" Jupyter notebook on your own time, or by participating in the corresponding course (also part of Bioweek).
