This course is suitable for people who can already program R and who now want to get acquainted with this very powerful package. Analyzing data is done for several reasons: discovering trends in the data, identifying outliers or detecting useful information. It is customary to sketch figures for each of these purposes. Various packages have been built on the R programming language that facilitate the life of a data analyst. GGplot2 is one of the most used packages to create very slick, informative and clear figures. In order to cover the complete functionality of ggplot2, during this course R GGPlot, attention will also be paid to manipulating data sets using the dplyr and reshape2 packages. A picture says more than a thousand words becomes reality with this package: ‘Let the data tell the story.’
