R Package for Statistical Analysis: Advanced

1/2 day

This session will build upon the material and techniques from the introductory workshop and cover topics such as data formatting, writing your own functions, coping with missing values, layered and lattice graphics, accessing data from the WWW, etc. We will also cover the use of higher order functions, such as apply(), and ways of writing R scripts more compactly and/or making them run faster. However, as we can access myriad packages through R, in order to best target the session to your needs, you will be asked to provide in advance a brief list of the sort of topics that that you would like to see covered in the workshop.
