UVA R User Meetup

After several months off, we're excited to announce the next meetup  of the UVA R User Group, Friday, September 23 from 4:00-5:30 pm. Stephen Turner, Director of the UVa Bioinformatics Core, will lead off with a demonstration of R Markdown websites, a relatively new feature from the developers at RStudio. Justin Taylor, who’s been interning with the Computational Biology group at HemoShear, is our second featured speaker and will be talking about object oriented programming in R with S3 and S4 classes. Plus, there’s a raffle! Join the UVaR meetup to learn more and to RSVP!
