R workshop at McGill

by Sofia

I spent Sunday in an R workshop that was part of the Genomes to Biomes conference, put on by the Montreal R User Group, who did a fantastic job. Slides are here.

I don’t have much time but I want to add some graphics to shame myself into playing around with it until I can do more.

Before I forget, the <- symbol can be added with the [Option] + [-] shorcut.

From the City of Montreal’s Open Data Portal.


The following is data about flowers, but the cool part is the regressions that are so simply drawn, in, as well as the standard error which is visually represented by the grey area surrounding the linear regression line.Image

This is info on the sleeping habits of different animals. Later I can add the code for these graphs, and the raw data.Image

Still have to figure out why I got this error: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/15285089/r-duplicate-row-names-are-not-allowed

And this was good motivation: http://matloff.wordpress.com/2014/05/21/r-beats-python-r-beats-julia-anyone-else-wanna-challenge-r/

And the girl next to me recommended I watch epi docs here: http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/
