Objectives

  • Understand how data is represented, know how to manipulate simple data structures, master basic functions in the {base} and {stats} packages for numerical computation and basic statistical functions, learn the basics of graphical visualization with the basic graphics package {graphics}.
  • At the end of this training, the participant should be able to write simple analysis scripts working with either artificial data or data sources that do not require major pre-processing. He/she will know how to implement the main statistical tests for comparing two samples and perform basic exploratory graphs.
