Here is a collection of RStudio “Cheatsheets” that provide an at-a-glance look at R packages and their related functions. View cheatsheets for dplyr, ggplot2, RStudio IDE and more.

Markov Chain Monte Carlo Generalised Linear Mixed Models (MCMCglmm) Course Notes – Jarrod Hadfield

These course notes emphasize understanding the underlying structure of generalized linear mixed models including regression, ANOVA, animal models, threshold models, meta-analysis, MANCOVA and random regression.This course also aims to show how these models can be fitted in a Bayesian framework using Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods in the MCMCglmm R package.

PLS205: Experimental Design and Analysis


This course compiles the lectures, tutorials, and materials of PLS205 taught by Daniel Runcie and focuses on implementing analyses in R. The goal of this course is to introduce graduate students in the biological sciences to the fundamental concepts and introductory statistical methods necessary to plan, conduct, and interpret experiments. It will be most accessible to students who have taken an introductory stats course (like PLS120 or STA 100.) The material is grouped into weekly blocks consisting of two lectures (1.5 hours each), one lab (1 hour), and one homework.


Swirl Interactive R Tutorial


Learn R… in R! Swirl is an R package that takes an interactive approach to learning R. After installing swirl via RStudio (or just R works too!) and loading the package into your library, you are all set to begin!


EMBL-EBI Training Online


EMBL-EBI offers free online courses in bioinformatics to help novices become competent in processing large quantities of biological data. These tutorials are estimated to take 0.5-1 hour to complete and can be done at your own pace.


BioEM Core Self-Training


Headed by the Biological Electron Microscope Facility, this evolving tutorial page includes many desirable resources such as virtual workshops, in-depth lectures, and informative procedures focusing on CryoEM.


Cryo EM has emerged as a powerful tool for high-resolution structure determination.
To aid the training efforts of newcomers to the field, this site has a media-rich curriculum to augment users’ own hands-on training. The training material contains videos, animations, and interactive simulations that cover the major components of the cryo-EM workflow.
