This course will take place online. There are three group/study sessions and one 1:1 session with the trainer:

  • Start eLearning: 14 March 2023
  • 1st Group Session: 21 March 2023, 09.30 – 11.30
  • 2nd Group Session: 28 March 2023, 09.30 – 11.30
  • Study Session: 30 March 2023, 14.30 – 16.30
  • 1:1 Mentoring Session: 4 April 2023, 09.00 – 17.30

Two weeks before the first group session you will receive access to the course material, which you will need to work through before the group sessions. This should take about 1-2 hours of your time per day.


Operate R using variables, functions, indexing and packages.
  • Import your own data regardless of size or format.
  • Perform standard statistical tests on large data-sets.
  • Produce plots and highlight specific data-points.
  • Begin programming in R using the apply functions.
  • Use split-combine-apply strategies for calculations and data manipulation.
  • Begin to adopt a bioinformatician’s perspective.

Courses are now structured by modules and run for three to four weeks, giving participants a clearer structure and more time to engage with the material and the instructor. Additionally, courses include a new Study Session module where students can explore real-world case studies.

You can find an extensive description of the course and its prerequisites here.

Before signing up for this workshop, please make sure that you can attend all the dates and write them in your calendar. If you do not show up or cancel at very short notice, other interested students will not be able to participate.
