Baby one more time - reproducibility in R and when to bring in the big guns


"Science should be show me, not trust me"

This month R-Ladies Melbourne is thrilled to welcome Lavinia Gordon who will give a seminar on reproducible research in R. This talk will walk through the various ways that reproducible research has evolved in R:
- from producing pdf documents
- to including code
- to producing reports
- to creating repositories with all the code and data and documentation

Featuring literature programming and version control, and moving R from local to production environments, specifically considering the best methods to run R on cloud computing with AWS.
The idea of this talk is provide enough information on how-tos, so that you feel confident to dive in and have a go!

Mrs Lavinia Gordon studied physiology and pharmacology, with a brief stint working for Novartis Pharma in Switzerland, before completing a Masters in Research in Bioinformatics at the University of York, including a collaborative project with GlaxoWellcome. She subsequently worked at the Cambridge Institute for Medical Research, with collaborative projects at the Sanger Institute and EMBL-EBI, and then moved to Melbourne to take up a position in the bioinformatics group at Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research. After five years she moved to work as a senior bioinformatician at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute in September 2006. In April 2014 she accepted a position as the Bioinformatics Manager at the Australian Genome Research Facility. In February 2018 she joined the University of Melbourne Centre for Cancer Research as the Precision Oncology Informatics Manager.

This event will be hosted by our fantastic sponsor Zendesk. Pizza and drinks will be provided. Arrive any time from 5:30pm for a 6pm start.

We look forward to seeing everyone there!
