Are you a new, intermediate, or experienced R user?

Have played with R a bit, just a beginner as far as R is concerned.

What types of applications do you use R for? (Biostatistics, Finance, Teaching, etc.)

Biology related applications are what I will most likely use R for, once I get up to speed with it.

What topics/applications are you interested in exploring more?

Given how little I know, just about anything R related would be of interest to me. Something that has caused me confusion is how data is structured in R, some tips on that would be nice. Perhaps some tips for perl, c, or java programmers new to R?


I am a biology undergrad due to graduate this spring. Prior to going back to school I wrote software for about 25 years. Perl has been my primary language for the last 12 years, before that I did a lot of coding in c++, c, and assembly language.
