We are excited to announce the fifth edition of our International Workshop in R for Bioinformatics!

This year, RaukR will be ONLINE and, despite our hopes, we cannot meet in Visby, Sweden. The 2021/2022 wave of the omicron variant made conferencing and international travel too uncertain to plan an on site event even in 2022.

Based on our previous experiences, the 2022 RaukR will be a week-long online workshop and you will still get the opportunity to learn R from internationally renowned R wizards and senior bioinformatics staff from NBIS/SciLifeLab. We believe that RaukR will take your bioinformatics R analysis and visualization skills to a new level, so do not miss out on this unique opportunity!

Guest speakers

Jenny Bryan — software engineer at RStudio, data science professor at UBC,
Yihui Xie — software engineer at RStudio.
Christophe Dervieux — software engineer at RStudio.

Main Organizers

Marcin Kierczak — Bioinformatics Data Scientist at NBIS,
Sebastian DiLorenzo — Bioinformatics Data Scientist at NBIS,
Roy Francis — Bioinformatics Data Scientist at NBIS.

In Life Science and Bioinformatics R is increasingly being used to transform and analyse data, perform statistical analysis and produce publication-ready visualizations. This Summer school will focus on advanced R functionality to increase the participants skillset and understanding of what is possible to do today. This year, we will also focus on advanced statistics and machine learning for bioinformatics using R.
