R is the leading open source statistical and data analysis programming language. Through thousands of useful open source libraries, R empowers its users to solve complex problems, efficiently analyze data and develop powerful visuals. R also enables users to build their own analysis methods and algorithms to solve specific problems. Through the use of an online self-study platform as well as live practice sessions and office-hours offered in-person at International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) Headquarters (HQ) or online via live streaming, this course empowers participants to become proficient in the R programming language so that they can begin to utilize R for whatever purpose they may need. For a more personalized learning experience, in-person attendance at IRRI HQ is recommended, but it is not required.
