Introduction to R Workshop at PI Summit 20205/18/2020 - 5/18/2020
Introduction to R Workshop
The Association for Pathology Informatics is pleased to offer a new beginner's workshop on the statistical programming language R to take place on the first day of the upcoming 2020 API Summit. R is a scalable tool that enables data analytics and graphics, and when mastered can be used for machine learning, image analysis, business intelligence, and much more!
This introductory R workshop aims to teach students with minimal programming experience the basics of the R statistical programming language for reproducible laboratory data analytics. R is a freely available programming environment that is aimed squarely at common activities in data analysis including complex data manipulation, statistical analysis, automation, and robust visualization. We will introduce basic concepts of R programming as well as more generalizable best practices in working with laboratory data.
Particularly for learners without computer programming skills, learning basic principles can be a challenge. By introducing basic tasks such as importing files, performing calculations, and generating plots, attendees will gain comfort with programming concepts and develop tools for lifelong learning.
At the conclusion of this workshop participants will be able to:
- List the key features of reproducible data analysis
- Use R to perform routine analyses of laboratory operational and quality data
- Create simple reproducible reports using R to support clinical laboratory operational needs
The R Workshop is limited to 30 people and requires pre-registration separate from your PI Summit registration. The workshop will take place on Monday, May 18, 2020
