Introduction to R in Bioinformatics & R Installation
You're currently learning a lecture from the course:
In order to have thorough understanding of the main topic, you should have the basic concept of the following terms:
R is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics. R provides a wide variety of statistical (linear and nonlinear modelling, classical statistical tests, time-series analysis, classification, clustering) and graphical techniques, and is highly extensible.
R in Bioinformatics:
R is rapidly becoming the most important scripting language for both experimental- and computational biologists. R is one of the most widely-used and powerful programming languages in bioinformatics. R especially shines where a variety of statistical tools are required (e.g. RNA-Seq, population genomics, etc.) and in the generation of publication-quality graphs and figures.
