Hands-on Practical Computing
in R for Life Sciences
BY Tan Tin Wee and Hu Yong Li
In today's biological research, massive amount of data are being generated and the ability to carry out analysis on such large datasets is a much needed skill. Unfortunately, not many Biologists are comfortable with computer programming and do not have much exposure and training in programming. In this hands-on practical, we will introduce the use of R computing environment to students who are interested in solving typical biological problems such as today's next generation sequencing and microarray data.
Part 1 (half day) Basic R Programming for Life Science Undergraduate Students (with Hands-on practice) - Dr Tan Tin Wee, Hu Yong Li, Christine Eng, Eric Lee [10 Jan 2014]
Part 2 (2 days) Elementary R, Bioconductor and other applications for Life Science Students - Tan Tin Wee, Hu YongLi, Eric Lee, Dr Xie Chao [TBD]
Part 3 (1 day) Practical Parallel Computing with R for Life Sciences
Dr Tan Tin Wee and Dr Xie Chao, Eric Lee [TBD]
Simple 3 hour Introduction (ppt slides) 10 Jan 2014
