BIO 316 - Introduction to R Programming for Biologists

Three Credits
Summer Online

Computers are essential for many aspects of biology.  Basic programming is required for everything from accessing and managing data to statistical analysis and modeling. This course will provide an introduction to data management, manipulation, and analysis, with an emphasis on biological problems.  The course will be taught using R, but the concepts learned will easily apply to other programming languages that are common in the field of Bioinformatics.

Prerequisite(s)/Restriction(s): BIO 101  or BIO 102  
Course Applies to: Biochemistry, Data Analytics, Environmental Studies/Science, Health Science, and Neuroscience
Note: No background in programming is required. This course counts as an upper-level Bioinformatics elective for Biology majors.
