o types of loops (for, while, repeat) and loop control statements (next, break)
o user functions and argument definitions
o local and global variables
o apply function family
o sourcing, timing, compilation and debugging
o code profiling and optimization
Prerequisite: We strongly recommend that you also register for the “Introduction to R” tutorial if you are new to the R environment.
This tutorial is offered twice, once on the Charles River Campus and once on the BU Medical Campus. You can attend either session.
