Data Analysis for Genomics

  • Apr 13, 2014 · 3:30 PM
  • Ahnon's

This Sunday we'll be discussing the class material from Week 1 - so please be sure to finish the first 4 core lectures before Sunday's meetup.  If you have any specific questions you would like discussed, please post them to the meetup comments below so I can prepare accordingly.

Since most of the first week is an introduction to tools and statistical concepts in R, please also bring a laptop to follow along as we explore the concepts discussed.

NOTE: Out of respect for the Honor code any students taking this course for a certificate, we will not answer any of the homework/"Knowledge Check" questions, but we will gladly help with any of the underlying concepts that might not be clear.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mailing list for this on-going class: https://groups.google.com/d/forum/data-analysis-genomics

Data Analysis for Genomics is a free HarvardX course that begins on April 7. This group is forming to prepare for the course, study together during the course and to create hands-on genomic analysis projects during and after the course. 

This group will be led by Brett Bowman, a bioinformatician at Pacific Biosciences and has led similar courses at BioCurious.

    I won't be able to make it either because there's a car blocking my driveway. Next two Sundays won't work for me, but I will come in May. See some of you on Tuesday for Craig's molecular cloning class.

    I'm doing well on the background and R programming, but have to skip due to other issues.. Plan to stay tuned in via .grps and come next Sunday

    Hey study buddies, only got up to the EDA intro for week 1. Thinking I should stay at home and finish up the lectures myself, but I'll see you guys next Sunday!

    How do I access an "R" library that is not in the collection already? I am trying to use 'purl' in the library 'knitr' but get the msg "there is no package called 'knitr" when I enter >library(knitr) into the R console.

      local({
      r <- getOption("repos"­)
      r["CRAN"] <- "http://cran.cnr.berke...
      options(repos = r)
      })

      Thank you!!

    OK, I finally figured out how access 'knitr' [it must be installed first: >install.packages("knitr")]. But there is a problem using 'purl' to access the file "Exploratory_Data_Analysis.Rmd" used in the PH525 course presentation: EDA Introduction. Anyone with ideas on this?

    BTW, for those who don't have much experience with R and who like the MOOC medium, there's a Coursera course which just opened today which covers it: https://class.coursera.org/rprog-002

    I planned to come today, but now I'm behind on lab stuff and should do that instead.
