Data Carpentry with R
Wednesday 11th March 0930-1730
eLearning Room 1 - School of Clinical Medicine, Biomedical Campus
In many domains of research the rapid generation of large amounts of data is fundamentally changing how research is done. The deluge of data presents great opportunities, but also many challenges in managing, analyzing and sharing data.
Data Carpentry workshops are designed to teach basic concepts, skills and tools for working more effectively with data, using a combination of tools with a main focus in R. The workshop is aimed at researchers in the life sciences at all career stages and is designed for learners with little to no prior knowledge of programming, shell scripting, or command line tools.

Introduction to Command-line Linux

Introduction to Statistical Analysis
Tuesday 11th February 0930-1700
This course provides a refresher on the foundations of statistical analysis. The emphasis is on interpreting the results of a statistical test, and being able to determine the correct test to apply.
Practicals are conducted using a series of online apps, and we will not teach a particular statistical analysis package, such as R. For courses that teach R, please see the links under "Related courses".
