Keep up your R Skills

, , Comments Off on Keep up your R Skills

For new and prospective users of R, just a word of encouragement.

It may seem a lot of effort to use R, as it does require you to use some programming skills. However there are really only a few main aspects to learn if you want to run your own analysis:

  • Start R Studio in a Project
  • Have you consulted a statistician or your supervisor to confirm your analysis ?
  • Focus on bringing in your data (is it a csv or excel or other format?)
  • Become familiar with your data, as you check it.
  • Make sure you know the design, and have those variables in your data-set (eg replicates)
  • Then make sure you know what you wish to analyse
  • If you are intending for a career in research use R Markdown for reporting
