An MCSP Conversation Series Talk: "Open-Source, Open-Science: Research in R" by Michael Johnson

Contact: Dr. Maggie Rahmoeller, rahmoeller@roanoke.edu

Who uses it? Why is it useful? How can one get started using R? In this talk, we will answer these questions and more! We’ll start by talking generally about R and its uses, and then demonstrate certain features of R, focusing on R Markdown and the Tidyverse package. We’ll especially focus on the uses of R when doing research, both in general and in my own personal experiences.
