We are researchers at LIBD that frequently use R and other tools. We blog about R packages we are interested in, how to do guides, and occasionally our own open-source software.

Since 2020 we have also been uploading videos to YouTube and our meeting schedule is public. We have a Google Group that is reserved to our members. If you have suggestions for future sesssions, please let us know!.

We would love feedback from the community and hope that our blog posts and videos will help researchers at LIBD and elsewhere. There are many packages and functions we don’t know about, plus the R community is always growing. This is part of our efforts to continue learning about R.
