With the increasing use of alternative software packages like R in data analysis, now is the time to learn their ins and outs. The large number of active programmers creating R packages makes this an up-to-date programme providing a huge range of statistical analyses. Researchers also use R to write functions for analysing data, or to create professional plots.

This course is aimed at teaching the students the basics of statistical programming in R. While doing so, the students will learn to understand statistical models and analysing/interpreting the results given by the statistical software.
