Seminar: “The Ten Commandments for creating a good database”

The R User Group is an open group, made up of volunteers who participated in the first edition of the “Wednesdays with R” course (held from October to December 2018).

The group’s objective is to promote the use of R as a statistical analysis and data visualisation tool in ISPA, SESPA and in biomedical research in general.

It will therefore carry out a range of initiatives to share knowledge about R and learning resources for the software.

The group’s chair and contact person is: Patricia Martínez Botía (@patmartinez9)
