Fundamentals of R for Biological Scientists Virtual Workshop
Handling large biological datasets is now a routine activity for researchers in the cancer and regenerative medicine fields. R is a popular scripting language that has become a common tool for managing biological datasets, however, the flexibility and power of R can be difficult to navigate for new users. To assist researchers, BioCanRx and the Stem Cell Network are partnering to provide a multi-session introductory workshop that will equip scientists with the fundamental knowledge to use R in their research. The workshop is intended for researchers who have little or no programming experience.
 
Workshop dates: This virtual workshop comprises of four 60 to 90-minute sessions, that will run weekly on September 7, 14, 21, and 28, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. ET (11:00 a.m. PT).
 
Application Deadline: Friday, August 5, 2022
