During this one-day course you will become acquainted with the basics by using R Studio. Several topics will be introduced such as writing R-code (syntax), processing data, performing simple statistical analyses, visualization of the results in graphs, and installation of extra packages. The course will be given by Dr. Wiebe Pestman and is provided by the section Biostatistics of the Department for Health Evidence at the Radboudumc.
