Introduction to R, RStudio and the Tidyverse for visualizing, wrangling and analyzing your data.

Modern approach to introductory statistics, good sections on plotting and summarizing data.

Mostly covers details of using the tidyverse to import, wrangle and get your data ready to analyze. 

More traditional statistics text, covering details of specific hypothesis tests (not R based, but useful background)

Covers many modern approaches to data analysis, and many different types of data including RNA-Seq, flow-cytometry, taxa abundances, imaging data and single cell measurements. (Although some of the R code relies on Base R instead of Tidyverse functions).

Multivariate analysis including ordination (e.g., PCA, nMDS plots), cluster analysis and diversity analysis

More advanced stats topics including Generalized Linear Models likelihood theory, zero-inflated Poisson, and parametric bootstrapping
