The Division of Epidemiology and Biostatistics presents “Introduction to R” Workshops

19 Mar 2019 - 08:15

The first of three "Introduction to R" workshops led by the Division of Epidemiology and Biostatistics in the School started in the second week of March. Over three days approximately 25 Masters and PhD students learned basics of R programming and an introduction to data manipulation in R. The workshop was aimed at new users and started from the very basics.

Future workshops will build on this one and introduce students to more advanced data analysis skills in R. The workshop materials are available through the public (to UCT community) Vula site "R Training (Div Epi Bios)" which can be joined without invitation. Training was led by Elton Mukonda, a PhD student in the Division of Epidemiology and Biostatistics and supported by a number of current 2nd year MPH students as teaching assistants.

The next workshop will run in April/May 2019. Details to be confirmed.
