To foster international participation, this course will be held online
The proficiency to visualise intricate datasets is a fundamental skill, pivotal not only in fostering a deep understanding of complex phenomena but also in effectively communicating within (and
beyond) the scientific community. A meticulously crafted plot can convey more information than an extensive body of text...
The primary objective of this intensive three-day course is to elucidate the efficient utilisation of R, tidyverse, and ggplot for the construction of sophisticated and enlightening scientific plots. Commencing with a foundational understanding of R, participants will emerge from the course equipped with the ability to proficiently load, manipulate, and visualise their own tabular data, while possessing the finesse to refine the aesthetic appearance of their plots. Practical sessions will be thoughtfully employed to facilitate discussions surrounding the strategic choices that optimise the informativeness and captivation of plots.
