R Workshops

R is a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics, developed at the Department of Statistics, University of Auckland. It is now used worldwide.

R consists of a language plus a run-time environment, RStudio, with graphics, and the ability to run programs stored in script files. Find upcoming workshop dates below.

Other 2-day workshops

  • Analysis of time-to-event (survival) data.
  • Multivariate data analysis methods for biological data.
  • Design and analysis of structured experiments.

Mini-workshops

Depending on demand we can run single half-day workshops for your research group.

Introduction to R

This two-day workshop covers data manipulation, data visualisation, and analysis. We use a biological dataset, however, the exercises and lessons will be useful to students and staff from other disciplines as well.
