Ziele The scientific computing platform (and programming language) R was originally designed for statistical analyses but has quickly emerged as a de facto standard in bioinformatics and is also rapidly becoming important in machine learning. In this regard, R is a platform of the future. Knowing R well is a great plus in statistics and machine learning, and a must in bioinformatics. The goal of this course is to provide an in-depth view of the R platform and programming language. Students should be enabled to implement and document their own R programs and packages making use of advanced concepts, such as, S4 classes and foreign language interfaces. Students should further be made able to identify and avoid performance bottlenecks. This course is complemented by a practical introduction to applications of R in bioinformatics, mainly focussing on packages that are part of the Bioconductor project.
