There are a few courses at UC Davis that use R.

- Duncan Temple Lang (one of the developers of R) teaches
*Statistical Computing*(STA141), a course mostly about R but also more general topics in computer science for statistics. He also organizes an informal seminar series on statistical computing. STA 242 is a more advanced version of the course. He also will teach STA 135 -*Multivariate Data Analysis*this year, which is not about R but uses R for data exploration, data mining, and regression. - Richard McElreath’s
*Statistical Rethinking*(ANT298) is a course in Bayesian statistical methods which doesn’t focus on R but teaches enough for the applications in the course. No longer taught but materials all available online. - Data Wrangling for Ecologists was a ECL298 taught by Ryan Peek:
*Using data science tools (R and Git) for exploration, analysis and research*Winter Quarter 2017. The course may be taught by someone else in the future, but is still up in the air. All materials available on website or here. - Marissa Baskett and Sebastian Schreiber teach
*Computational methods in population biology*(ECL298) in alternate years. This course also isn’t explicitly about R but teaches enough basics so as to be able to use it for the applications in the course. They also created this handy cheat sheet *Design, Analysis, and Interpretation of Experiments*(PLS 205) has in the past provided an optional extra section to learn techniques in R in addition to SAS- Carole Hom teaches
*Introduction to Dynamic Models in Modern Biology*(BIS 132) where R is used for differential and difference equation modeling. - There are occasional paid workshops offered on campus
- At least one section of STA100 uses R
- Robert Hijmans teaches
*Quantitative Geography*(GEO200CN). It is a survey course about spatial data analysis and modeling using R, including subjects such as point pattern analysis, kriging, inference, cellular automata and Markov chains. It has lectures, disussions, and a intensive lab. - Jim Fadel teaches ABG250:
*Mathematical Modeling in Biological Systems*, which uses R and teaches enough for the applications in class - The political science methods sequence (POL211, POL212, POL213) uses R.
- Andrew Latimer’s
*Applied Statistical Modeling for Environmental Science*(PLS298) uses R in addition to JAGS and OPENBugs. It assumes familiarity with R.

### General Statistics Resources at UC Davis

- Here is a page compiling stats and modeling courses that Ecology students can take at UC Davis
- The UC Davis Department of Statistics has a consulting service that is free for disseration-related statistical advice. You get a 1-hour meeting with a statistician to discuss your research and they will send you a write-up of their recommendations.
