Bioinformatics Training and Education Program

Class Documents

Most BTEP courses include detailed course materials including lesson content, additional resources, and lesson associated data. These course materials are listed here so that learners can easily return to and review concepts taught in class and/or reproduce code. These materials are also meant to serve as stand alone tutorials for those unable to attend a given course.

Note: not all classes include detailed course material. Other course materials including presentation slides and handouts can also be found here.

Programming Languages

  • R Introductory Series (Jan – Feb, 2023)
    • This course introduced the foundational skills necessary to begin to analyze and visualize data in R and was designed for individuals new to R or with limited R experience.
  • Data Visualization with R
    •  The purpose of this course was to introduce learners to data visualization with R with a primary focus on ggplot2 and related packages. Course content was developed for those with beginner level experience in R.
  • Data Wrangling with R
    • This course was designed for those with beginner level experience to introduce learners to essential R packages and functions needed to explore, clean, transform, and summarize data.
  • How to install and setup and R environment
