CEBIB Webinar on Applications of R software in Data Science

R is a versatile open-source software not only for data scientists but also for other research scientists. Unlike the previous years where we hosted on-site hands-on R-software training in the University of Nairobi's Centre for Biotechnology and Bioinformatics - Bioinformatics lab, this year, we will host a webinar on the various applications of R software in data science.

Our facilitator's this year are Kelvin Muteru (PhD Bioinformatics fellow) and Charles Ndegwa; the session will be moderated by Dr. Roseline Macharia.
