Introduction to R

R is a programming language that is especially powerful for data exploration, visualization, and statistical analysis. With hands-on exercises, we will learn how to import and manage datasets, create R objects, install and load R packages, conduct basic statistical analyses, and create common graphical displays. This solid foundation of skills is an excellent starting point for using R for everyday and sophisticated research analyses.
