The course will introduce programming logic using the R syntax. The participants will be able to solve problems involving heterogeneous biological datasets and the combined use of different statistical packages, so the advantages of learning programming skills can be demonstrated. The RMarkdown syntax will be used to illustrate the advantages of literate programming and the possibilities of code sharing and archiving. In the sequence, participants will learn how to design relational databases (RDB) which can be used to manage and analyse large biological datasets. They will learn the basics of the SQL language and how to use it with R with the package {RMySQL}.

There are many different course options available, based on applicants previous experience levels. Most classes run from 09:00-17:00. The course runs for 5 days.
