R: Loops and Writing Functions

This workshop has sessions on multiple days. You should plan to attend all the sessions.

In R, repetitive and iterative tasks are addressed through:

  • "for" loops
  • the "apply" family of functions
  • and writing our own functions

This intermediate-level workshop will cover the basics of these topics. We assume you are already familiar with RStudio, and R language basics - some data wrangling, some statistical analysis, some basic graphing.
