Next DZIF bioinformatics workshop: “Introduction to R”

11. Dezember 2019 - 13. Dezember 2019

Increasingly, physicians and biologists are facing large amounts of data that can no longer be analyzed "by hand”. The R environment offers free software facilities for data manipulation, calculation and graphical display. It thus allows handling of large data amounts, simplifies the interpretation of the data, or enables a deeper analysis.

Dear colleagues,

we are pleased to announce the next DZIF bioinformatics workshop: “Introduction to R”. The workshop will take place December 11-13 at the BRICS in Braunschweig.


Wed, Dec 11, 10am–4pm.

Programming basics, the R programming language, R studio, data wrangling

Thu, Dec 12, 9am–4pm.

Data import and export, basic plotting with ggplot2: boxplots, barplots, heatmaps, statistical tests, publication ready plots with ggpubr

Fri, Dec 13, 9am–12pm (open end).

Case study: gene expression data analysis with DESeq2;
starting from 1pm (optional): Open session, discuss your own projects/data

Apply here:

(Application deadline: Sunday, November 24.)
