Consumer safety and product reliability are top of mind for regulated manufacturing industries, including pharmaceuticals. Documenting key processes, like clinical trials and laboratory tests, is critical and calls for a systematic approach. That’s where GxP comes in, with a strong focus on Good Documentation Practices. This globally recognized standard ...
In computer programming, a variable is a named memory location where data is stored. For example,
x = 13.8
Here, x is the variable where the data 13.8 is stored. Now, whenever we use x in our program, we will get 13.8.
x = 13.8
# print variabl... [Read more...]
How to Rotate Axis Labels in ggplot2?.
Axis labels on graphs must occasionally be rotated.
Let’s look at how to rotate the labels on the axes in a ggplot2 plot.
Let’s begin by creating a basic data frame and the plot.

Enhance your data science toolkit with our “Shiny” learning path: build your first shiny app, make it shine and robust, and bring it to production.
R Shiny is empowered data science through interactive interface. By providing your code with a UI, it...
Over one billion dollars have been spent in the US to split up big schools into smaller ones because small schools regularly show up in rankings as top performers. In this post, I will show you why that money was wasted because of a widespread (but not so well known) ... [Read more...]
Comments are portions of a computer program that are used to describe a piece of code. For example,
# declare variable
age = 24
# print variable
Here, # declare variable and # print variable are two comments used in the code.

I love the clean simplicity of an R Markdown document. But sometimes it can feel a little bare and utilitarian. This is especially the case if it’s rendered into the body of an email. How about injecting a little more pizzazz?

One of the main assumptions of linear regression taught in statistics courses is that of “constant variance” or “homoscedasticity.” Having data that do not have constant variance (i.e., are heteroscedastic) is then often treated as a problem—a nuisance that violates our assumptions and, among other things, produces inaccurate ...
