This is a basic introduction to R and Bioconductor, meaning that no prior experience with either is assumed, we start from scratch. We also do not go deep in the actual methods implemented in Bioconductor. In other words, the aim of this course is to give the participants a solid understanding of the basics, so that further learning is easier.

This course is part of the CSC BioWeek.

The topics covered include:

  • RStudio user interface and workflow
  • Basic data structures and types (vectors, factors, data frames etc.)
  • Reading in data and handling data
  • Basic analysis and plotting
  • Working with Bioconductor and differences to R itself
