You always wanted to create nice looking graphs from you tables and statistical analyses? This is your workshop. You will learn how the grammar of graphics (Leland Wilkinson 1999) is implemented into the ggplot2 package in R and how to use it to flexibly create amazing looking graphs.

At the end of this workshop, you will be able to

  • create different types of graphs
  • change the aesthetics of graphs (e.g. colour, formatting of labels and axes, themes)
  • use techniques to deal with overplotting (e.g. groups and facets)

Pre-requisites? Introductory understanding or R, e.g. from “Introduction to Data Science with R” or equivalent.

This workshop will be hosted online on Zoom and takes about 3 hours. Registration is open until 1 hour before the workshops starts. You will receive the Zoom link for the workshop about an hour before the workshop starts. The instructor will be Tim Elrick.
