BSC 30200 Biometry I: Introduction to R

The R statistical programming language is a common and freely accessible option for publication-level data analysis. This course will introduce the use of R while also reinforcing concepts of scientific inquiry, experimental design, and inferential statistics. Foundational instruction in computer programming will be provided—no prior programming experience is necessary. Example data sets used in class will be drawn from various biological disciplines, providing many examples for application. An emphasis will be placed on the versatile and powerful graphical capabilities of R. This course is applicable as an elective for all emphases within the biology major.
