June R Workshop from Pat Schloss

From Pat Schloss/ the Mothur-announce mailing list

Hi mothur fans,
I’ll be hosting another Crashcourse in R Workshop for Microbial Ecologists this June. The workshop will run from June 23rd to 25th near the Detroit airport. The workshop is being filled on a first come, first served basis. The workshop is geared towards people with interests in microbial ecology that would like to learn R or to learn it better so you shouldn’t feel like this isn’t for you if you are a beginner. I assume no previous computer programming experience. The workshop is an even blend of lecture/discussion and hands on use of R with real data and typically uses mothur output files as a starting point. This is a new workshop that I am offering, so here is a rough outline of what the workshop schedule will look like (it is subject to some minor changes)…

AM Introduction to R – operations, variable types
PM R basics – getting data in and out, packages


AM Plotting: Core functions
PM Plotting: Lattice / RGL


AM Programming in R – Functions, loops
PM Programming in R – Controlling flow

Each day there will be a lecture and discussion interspersed with hands-on activities and it will run from 9 to 5. If you would like to meet with me one-on-one to discuss your project, I can do that in the evening and during breaks. Please email me for more details. Thanks,
Pat Schloss

To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
