This course focuses on employing Open-source bioinformatics software, tools and resources – including web-based programs, databases and common-line programs – to access and analyse the extraordinary volume of data available and to answer relevant biological questions. 
This course is designed for those with interest in data analysis and data exploration, in particular for biological data. It provides an introduction to the R system. R is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics. The course discuss different approaches to summarize and visualize datasets, perform statistical tests and learn patterns from the data including the application of classical and state-of-the-art methods.
