The focus of the OSOS workshop will be using open source methodologies like R in phylogenetics and molecular evolution. The workshop will be *all day* and will include these great module leaders and modules:
The OSOS workshop will conclude with a super-awesome dinner/evening social hosted by EEBISO and EEB. Check your email soon for announcements and updates about the social.
No previous knowledge of R is required. The course is FREE and open to all students, postdocs, and faculty. A laptop is required.
Prior to the start of the workshop, you need to install R and R Studio, as appropriate for your operating system, as well as the additional packages and collection of packages described in this document (pdf). The software packages that make up the software program R are hosted at a set of mirrored sites around the world, which together make up the Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN). For the fastest download speeds, select a CRAN location close to you, such as Revolution Analytics in Dallas, TX. For R STudio, select the open-source desktop version of R Studio.
Memorial Student Center (MSC) 2400 (Ballroom). There will be powerstrips available to keep your laptop charged.
Doors will open at 8AM with modules starting at 8:30. Snacks and coffee will be provided during morning and afternoon breaks and participants will have 1.5 hours for lunch (on their own).
