ASMS 2017

65th ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics
Indianapolis, Indiana
June 4-8 2017

Work Shop 03

5:45-7:00PM Tuesday June 6

Statistics and Bioinformatics using R


The objectives of this workshop will be to introduce the community to the R statistical programming language, specifically the integrated development environment RStudio and a few select package libraries that facilitate data manipulation and plotting, along with presenting a few mass spectrometry relevant examples. We are proposing to structure the workshop around short 5-10 minute micro presentations introducing each subject followed by several minutes of open discussion. The overall goal of this workshop is to gauge the interests of ASMS attendees towards R statistical programming and to get a better understanding of how R can best serve the community.
