IMPRS-LS Workshop

Data Visualization with R


Date: Wednesday 2nd - Tuesday 15th November 2022

Location: online

Trainer: Rick Scavetta

Description: This workshop enables life scientists to effectively create figures based on quantitative data that add impact to their publications. The workshop is divided into two modules: Principles and Applications.

Participants learn how to:

  • use figures and tables to effectively tell the story of their research.
  • decide whether text, tables, or plots are most appropriate to convey the message of each result.
  • choose the most appropriate plot type for their data.
  • understand the science of perception and apply design principles to communicate their message clearly.
  • use aesthetics to relate sensory attributes (color, shape, etc.) to abstractions (enrichment, change-over-time).
  • distinguish between graphics for publication and for data exploration.
