Introduction to a new series about common mistakes in statistics, datavis and everything else in biology.
Recently I got the opportunity to attend to SOKENDAI’s Freshmen course. Here I summarise the questions and answers I got on my presentation.
I was interested in web scraping and text/sentinel analysis with R and thought for a practice I can check what are the most commonly used words and phrases in a scientific top journal, like Nature or Science. It can help you to learn several R packages and techniques and also help to find out what are the most popular terms you can use for a research paper’s title if you want to publish with the top.
In the previous post I discussed a bigger project, now let’s see a smaller part of it, learn how to control local BLAST search from R and get back the information from it for further processing.
Create a Shiny webpage on a server to automatically maintain and protect primers’ database with some extra function and a highly user-friendly interface.
So it started… again.
