“The sweetest R-help group this side of the Mississippi.”

Welcome to the Davis R Users’ Group (D-RUG)! We are a community of R-Users at UC Davis who support each other in using R for science and research. Our focus is providing a space for beginning and intermediate users to learn from each other. We have weekly, 2-hour work sessions where people bring their computers to work on their own projects, and ask each other questions as needed. We have no TAs - just mutual support from folks working on/in R and related topics. Group members sometimes give short presentations on R methods and best practices or to get feedback on their projects.

Join the Mailing List

Join the group listserv here. The mailing list is an online supplement to our in-person work sessions, and a friendly place to post R-related questions.
