About R

  • Motivation: when analyzing data for any research project, it's essential to be able to quickly clean the raw data, transform them, plot intermediary results, calculate summary statistics, try various more-or-less sophisticated models, etc. This must be easily doable with small as well as large data sets, interactively or not. Several tools exist to fill exactly this need, and R is only one of them, but I especially recommend it because it is build by statisticians (this means that the implemented models are numerous and state-of-the-art). Moreover, it's open-source (and even free software), platform-independent, full of packages, with well-documented resources, etc, so give it a try!
