Reporting Research with Rmarkdown workshop

Oct 18, 8:45 am - 4:30 pm

$40 – $120

Introducing some more advanced features of R including reporting with Rmarkdown, and some powerful data manipulation and plotting packages.

Ultimately, when you analyse a data set, someone wants a report from it, be it your boss, a funding body, or published research. And when it comes to publications, there is a push for “reproducible research”.

In this workshop, we examine what reproducible research means, and how R can enable you to easily turn your data into reports and papers. We will also cover some more advanced R skills around data manipulation and graphics

  • The course is run by grains industry researchers, for grains industry researchers. Researchers in other industries are also more than welcome to attend!
  • As always, the course is non-threatening, with plenty of examples and hands-on practice to help you get familiar with the concepts.

What will you get out of it?

  • You will build on previous R skills.
  • You will learn some tools that enable easy reporting through R.
