SHEATHE: Xenobiotic substances and heavy metals in the environment – a threat to health, ecosystems and development in Ghana
As part of the training package for the SHEATHE PhD candidates a cause module on Basic Statistic and R programing was organized. The 5 day training program was organized to up skill researches on how to use the R programming tool to make various statistical analysis.
R provides a powerful and comprehensive system for analysing data and when used in conjunction with the R-commander (a graphical user interface, commonly known as Rcmdr) it also provides one that is easy and intuitive to use. Basically, R provides the engine that carries out the analyses and Rcmdr provides a convenient way for users to input commands. The Rcmdr program enables analysts to access a selection of commonly-used R commands using a simple interface that should be familiar to most computer users. It also serves the important role of helping users to implement R commands and develop their knowledge and expertise in using the command line --- an important skill for those wishing to exploit the full power of the program. 
The participants of the workshop also included senior members of the University as well as graduate student and project affiliates.
