Learn R and Bioinformatics

We are introducing remotely taught R modules designed specifically for the biologists. Each module is short and focussed, where you see immediate value compared to your current workflow. For example, module 3 helps you gain efficiency by moving away from Excel to R. We used similar modules to successfully teach R to high-school students, who had no prior coding background. You can read their testimonials here.

Module 1.

R for Biology (Free)

This introductory module helps you get started with R, a powerful software tool for biological data analysis. We will cover the absolute basics and share with you the essence of why R is so useful. You will also receive information on the best online resources to continue learning. Furthermore, based on your specific data analysis needs, we will guide you through the appropriate learning modules to be quickly productive.

Module 2.

NGS - RNAseq Analysis using R

This module shows teaches you to process tabular data from RNAseq experiments using R. On completion, you will be able to replace Excel or other spreadsheet programs with R and gain efficiency in your data analysis. You will learn about 'dplyr', a powerful and versatile R library. Additionally, you will get familiar with the mapping program Kallisto and, differential expression analysis module DESeq2.

Cost:$99 for premium members, $125 for others.

Module 3.

NGS - RNAseq Analysis using R (Advanced)

This module teaches you to use various R-based tools for RNAseq data analysis. You will learn about mapping (kallisto), differential expression analysis (DESeq2, edgeR, sleuth), annotation, clustering, GO analysis and other biological analyses of data.

Cost:$99 for premium members, $125 for others.

Module 4.

Data Visualization in R (ggplot)

Visual representation of data is an important aspect of exploratory data analysis. This module shows how to use the powerful and versatile ggplot library for this purpose. You will also learn methods to prepare publication-quality figures using ggplot.

Cost:$99 for premium members, $125 for others.

Module 5.

Statistical Analysis in R

This module helps you learn statistical concepts and perform statistical analysis of biological data using R. You will create random datasets, learn about statistical distributions (binomial, Poisson, normal/Guassian) and perform Student's t test, analysis of variance (ANOVA), linear regression, Principle Component Analysis (PCA) and clustering analysis.

Cost:$99 for premium members, $125 for others.
