dc.description.abstract In this follow up workshop to “Introduction to R” researchers will have the opportunity for a deeper dive into R. Available on all IU's supercomputers, R is a flexible open source statistical programming language that can work with large and complex data sets. This workshop will address several advanced topics in R as well as giving participants the opportunity to use R on IU’s supercomputers. The topics to be covered include: R scripting on IU supercomputers; debugging, profiling, and performance analysis of R code; parallel programming in R, including the Rmpi and snowfall packages; and advanced plotting in R. Participants will have access to the supercomputer Big Red II during the session and will be able to see hands-on examples of running R code and submitting batch jobs in R. en
