This is the first part of a 2-part practical, hands-on course on the R programming language, designed for those with no prior programming experience. The objective is to get attendees from a large public dataset to a testable hypothesis as efficiently as possible.
The course will cover:
- Basic R syntax, data types, and packages
- Accessing public databases like The Cancer Genome Atlas
