My R Course

Here you’ll find some useful information, tips and tricks related to my graduate course in experimental design and statistical analysis using R.

This course was developed in collaboration with my former graduate student Sarah Flanagan, who is currently a postdoctoral scientist at the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS).

The textbooks for the course are:

The Analysis of Biological Data by M. Whitlock and D. Schluter, and
