Open Science, Floor 9 - 903
Welcome to our
This practical session is designed for R users and aims to set beginners in version control up with some basic skills in using github through Rstudio to manage projects and collaborate online.
- get to know the audience (10 mis)
- Shout outs and twitter polls.
get to know github (25 mins)-
- github as a computational research tool
2. Get stuck in
Version control with github and rstudio (40 mins)-
In this session, we are going to get you started with using version control from within RStudio.
The material is self-paced and includes a worked-example. It is suggested that you work through the sections in order.
Collaborative github through rstudio #EvoLottery (40 mins)-
Beak and skull shapes in birds of prey (“raptors”) are strongly coupled and largely controlled by size.
In this exercise, each participant will fork a github repo, and contribute a file required to simulate the evolutionary trajectory of an imaginary species' body size.
We'll collate all species files and plot them all up together at the end!
We'll also discover the skull and beak shapes associated with each simulated species size.
Want to participate remotely? You can!
Follow the links to the materials for each section. All steps required are detailed.
