Skills to be acquired in this module
DNA sequencing has become a routine method in microbiology research. Most of the times, sequence analysis requires knowledge of a programming language. One of the programing languages most used for this purpose is R. The course will cover the following topics:
I. programming in R using an integrated development environment (RStudio)
II. working with strings (stringr package)
III. working with lists and data frames (readr and dplyr package)
IV. sequence analysis (seqinr, Bioconductor packages: Biostrings, GenomicRanges, Decipher)
V. (meta)-genomic and data visualization (ggplot2, Gviz)
VI. Creating sequence / metadata dabases
VII. Accessing and mining sequence / metadata databases though R based web applications (Shiny, DT and Shinyjs packages)
VIII. reporting in R (Rmarkdown and Knitr packages)
IX. managing code (Roxygen2 package)
X. microbial genome annotation using R
