Introduction to Data Analysis in R

R is amazing! It is a totally free package for statistical computing and graphics. The R language is widely used among statisticians and environmental scientists. It has a huge range of add-ons and is massively flexible - if there's something you want to do, chances are R can do it. It is however scary to learn - it took me years and some very good, patient instruction to learn the few bits I know. This seminar was designed to pass on the basics and was developed for University of Glasgow colleagues in the Social Sciences.
