Two-day course in biodiversity analysis “R in Biodiversity Analysis: rOpenSci for all” on Tuesday-Wednesday January 24-25 2017.
While in recent years the availability to biodiversity information has increased dramatically, successively more researchers and analysts have employed R programming for presentation and analysis in ecology, evolutionary and conservation biology, and environmental management practice.
By a collaborative effort GBIF-Sweden, the Bioinformatics and Genetics unit at the Swedish Museum of Natural History, EU BON and Swedish LifeWatch now offer a two-day course in R programming introducing up-to-date tools for application and analysis within these fields of science and management.
By bringing together some of the world´s most prominent R developers we expect to be able to offer a wide-ranging introduction to the topic, to present possibilities for customized tools adaptation, and opportunities for individual practice.
Welcome to the course! Please find detailed information regarding the two-day programme and registration instructions on the link below. Additional information will be published successively at the same address. Remember to register no later than January 16.
If you have any questions, please contact Anders Telenius at the Department of Bioinformatics and Genetics.
