Course Description

Understand lists and list structure, and how it adds more power to R. Work with regular expressions for text extraction to manipulate your data. Learn to write your own functions to handle special situations. Discover the apply family of functions and how they provide powerful and efficient looping mechanisms. Set up basic scripts for repeatable analysis and understand how to use control structures within the scripts. Topics include checking quartiles, finding the center of your data, describing distributions, tracking correlations, plotting densities, and creating box plots. Additional topics include working with graphics, creating different types of plots, manipulating files, and producing reports.

In this class, you will learn how to: 

  • Create reproducible and reusable scripts 

  • Create functions to meet specific needs and requirements, which can be reused later 

  • Use conditional logic with if-else statements to determine when an action is needed 

  • Use Regular Expressions to match text or replace text 

  • Read and write comma separated files, navigate directories, and produce reports 

  • Use lists for data that has multiple formats 

  • Use the Apply family of functions to achieve the same effect as loops 

  • Use statistics including summaries, quantiles, ranges, distributions, and correlations 

  • Create graphs for plotting densities, box plots, lines plots, bar and column graphs, and pie charts 

  • Learn how to save a graph to a file within a script
