Workshop: Working with text in R

Tuesday, April 2, 2024 10:30to12:30

Workshop Overview: R is mostly known for its statistical methods on numbers. However, it is also capable of working efficiently with text and analysing it. In this workshop we will take a deep dive into how to work with text in R and introduce you to functions that allow you to even do text mining.
At the end of this workshop, you will be able to
    · manipulate strings efficiently
    · import text from multiple sources
    · lay the basis for working with regular expressions (regex)
    · do some text mining with the tidytext package

Prerequisite: basic understanding of R, e.g. through the CDSI workshop "Introduction to data science with R".

Location: HYBRID. Online via Zoom, or in-person at Burnside Hall room 1104 (11th floor).
Instructor: Jake Lawlor, PhD student, Dept. of Biology, Faculty of Science, McGill.
