During COVID-19, Research Commons' services continue.
SFU graduate students are encouraged to book consultations with the Research Commons staff and partners. Consultations are available by phone, via email, or through online video-conference.

All times are Pacific Time Zone (Vancouver, BC, Canada).
- Import data from a CSV or text file
- Extract and create columns in a data frame, and filter rows according to different conditions
- Write an R script that can run on its own without manual user intervention.
By the end of the workshop you will be able to:
- Use the primary dplyr functions for selecting, mutating, filtering, summarizing, and re-ordering data
- Recognize existing complicated base R code blocks and simplify them down using dplyr
- Use tidyr (a tidyverse package) to easily reshape data both to and from long and wide formats.
You need to attend BOTH days. Different topics are covered each day and it builds on materials covered on the previous day, so if you miss a day, we won't have the resources to help you catch up in this online environment.
