About the Webinar

This webinar version of part 2​ of​ our workshop will introduce participants to R, using specific examples from plant pathology. Participants will learn how to: read in data, manipulate data, summarize and visualize data, perform comparisons, find and load packages, write reproducible reports, and troubleshoot common problems. Exercises will provide training in the newest tools from the tidyverse, such as dplyr and ggplot2. Participants are expected to bring their own laptop with an up-to-date version of R installed. This workshop will be tailored to the experience level of the participants, so that everyone will gain confidence in their abilities to use R. By providing access to the latest open source tools for data analysis, this workshop is expected to have broader impacts, enabling collaborations and reproducible research.
