Dr. Paul Murrell will offer his “Graphics in R” course online at 
statistics.com May 4 – June 1.  Participants can ask questions and exchange 
comments with Dr. Murrell via a private discussion board throughout the period.

This course teaches you how to produce publication-quality statistical 
plots of data using R (a freely available open-source statistical language 
and environment).  It will cover plots such as scatterplots, bar plots, 
histograms, boxplots and Trellis plots.  It will review the underlying 
model used to produce plots in R so that you can extensively customize 
these plots.  Finally, the course will introduce the grid graphics system 
and look at producing unique plots from the ground up using basic components.

Dr. Murrell, the author of “R Graphics,” (CRC Press 2005) has been a member 
of the core development team for R since 1999, with a focus on the graphics 
system in R.  He is the Editor-in-Chief of “R News,” the newsletter of the 
R project, and an Associate Editor for “Computational Statistics.”  He is 
also Chair of the American Statistical Association’s Statistical Graphics 
Section, and a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Statistics at the 
University of Auckland, New Zealand.

The course lasts four weeks and consists of a series of four weekly lessons 
(directed readings and/or notes, plus exercises).  Expect to spend about 
10-15 hours per week; there are no set hours when you must be online.
