22nd Summer Institute in Statistical Genetics

Module 6: Advanced R for Statgen Software Package Development

Week 1, Session 2, Wednesday 1:30 PM - Friday 5:00 PM: Wed Jul 12 to Fri Jul 14

This new module assumes a good command of R, beyond that covered in Module 1: Probability and Statistical Inference. It covers the construction of packages that can be used easily by others, rather than being just a collection of new functions.

For computational efficiency it covers calling to C code, as well as successful access to large datasets and online resources. Guidelines for preparation of documentation and versioning that adhere to principles of reproducible research are included as well.
