## Using R for classification in small-N studies

July 14, 2012
By

Rick Davies just wrote an interesting post which combined thoughts on QCA (and multi-valued QCA or mvQCA) and classification trees with thoughts on INUS causation and classification trees. The question was something like: how can we look at...

## Processing Public Data with R

July 13, 2012

At a talk I saw at the useR!2012 conference last month, Googler Karl Millar estimated that there are at least 200 active R users at Google, plus another 300+ occasional users participating in Google's internal R support list. But what are all these Google employees doing with R? A post from the Google Research team published on Google+ yesterday...

## Analysing time course microarray data using Bioconductor: a case study using yeast2 Affymetrix arrays

July 13, 2012
By

A few years ago I was involved in analysing some time-course microarray data. Our biological collaborators were interested in how we analysed their data, so this lead to a creation of tutorial, which in turn lead to a paper. When we submitted the paper, one the referees “suggested” that we write the paper using Sweave;

$Dynamical systems: Mapping chaos with R$

Chaos. Hectic, seemingly unpredictable, complex dynamics. In a word: fun. I usually stick to the warm and fuzzy world of stochasticity and probability distributions, but this post will be (almost) entirely devoid of randomness. While chaotic dynamics are entirely deterministic, their sensitivity to initial conditions can trick the observer into seeing iid. In ecology, chaotic

## Examples and resources on association rule mining with R
