Italian Bio R Day 2012 – Slides on Reproducible Research using R and Bioconductor

December 3, 2012

(This article was first published on One R Tip A Day, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

Thanks to Parco Tecnologico Padano (PTP), I was invited to speak at the first Italian Bio R Day that was held in Lodi on 30 November 2012. It was a nice opportunity to talk and listen about different aspects of R from practitioners with different backgrounds (epidemiology, chemometrics and bioinformatics).
My presentation was about Reproducible Research in High-Throughput Biology using R and Bioconductor. The presentation was held in Italian but the slides and the case study are in English. All the material was created using Rstudio, taking advantage of its amazing integration with both  knitr and github,  knitr to convert R Markdown to Markdown and Sweave/knitr to LaTeX, and pandoc for converting markdown to html5. The material is quite basic, nevertheless I’d like to share it under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-Share Alike 3.0 License. You can access everything from here. Fell free to fork it, highlight errors or plagiarism, suggest modifications, etc.:  I’ll be more than happy to fix bugs and give credits to where is due.
 Finally, I’d like to thank Andrea Pedretti for inviting me at this nice meeting , Yihui Xie for his awesome knitr package and Vince Buffalo for his inspiring The Beauty of Bioconductor blog post.
