Emphasis will therefore be on learning R's basic functions (syntax, data import/export, etc.) and on finding and interpreting R documentation. Limited attention will also be given to basic statistical operations. Registration required; please visit http://tinyurl.com/SSRIworkshopsF13 to access the registration form.
