R Adelaide

This 3-day course can be taken as a complete course, or as individual days to suit your experience level. The material is aimed at beginner to intermediate-level R users with a focus on biological researchers

Please note, you will require your own laptop/tablet running R and R Studio. Access to a Windows Desktop using ADAPT will be a potential alternative if your computer is not suitable.
