BIOF 076 | Creating Plots, Graphs and Maps using R
August 4, 2020 – August 7, 2020
R is the industry standard for creating scientific graphs and plots. There are several different R packages available for creating impressive plots, graphs and maps including plotly, ggplot2, ggvis, diagrammer – for diagrams, dygraphs – for time series data, leaflet – for plotting maps, graphviz – for graphs. This training will walk through participants in creating awesome, interactive, static, shareable plots using popular R packages.
Participants will get a brief hands-on introduction to the R platform, followed by hands-on walk through for creating several different popular plots, graphs and maps like scatter plots, density plots, correlation plots, pca plots, surface plots, dot plots, star plots, circular plots, trees, heat maps, panel graphs, 3D graphs, network graphs. We will start from formatting data and go all the way to loading data, setting parameters, creating the images and saving the outputs.
