workshop: Introduction to Biostatistical Analysis with R

CRIR’s Biostatistics services is organizing its first training workshop. Lasting 3 days, this practical workshop will focus on an overview of the basic methods of statistical analysis using the statistical programming software R.

The practical workshop, at the beginner level, is intended primarily for students and postdoctoral fellows and research professionals. The training will be in French, the teaching materials in English and the questions and answers in both languages.

Why R ? R is a free, open-source statistical programming software that represents an alternative to commercial software such as SPSS and SAS. It covers a wide variety of statistical analysis techniques in disciplines as diverse as economics, social sciences, and biomedical research.  R allows the manipulation and processing of very large heterogeneous data and also has excellent graphical representation capabilities that far exceed the graphical resources of commercial statistical analysis software. The R software has thus become an essential tool in data science. Built around a core group of statisticians and programmers, hundreds of volunteer contributors from around the world work to improve the statistical and graphical features of R, to create new ones, and to share them with the public through packages (collections of functions) stored in a public directory ( and available for download and installation.

Workshop plan:
  • Day 1: Introduction to R
  • Day 2: Introduction to Biostatistical Analysis with R
  • Day 3: Case Study

A Practical training at the beginner level  and intended for those wishing to learn about the statistical programming environment R. Biostatistical techniques and methods will be illustrated using examples and case studies. No experience with R is required for this training.
