Wisconsin Fish Education Activities

WI Coop Fish graduate student working in the field.

Courses Taught

  • R Programming for Biologists At the completion of the course, students will be able to: (1) understand the basic components of R such as functions and data structures; (2) read in and manipulate data formatted as a .csv file; (3) write functions, loops, and conditionals; (4) create graphs; and (5) code basic statistics that are commonly used in biology. Most importantly, this course will teach students how to think like a programmer and how to obtain and understand help documents. The overall goal of the course is to give students the tools necessary to tackle new tasks in R that were not covered in the course. The course will be split into two main themes: learning the principles of R programing (weeks 1-8), and learning how to code statistical analyses in R (weeks 9-16). (Wes Larson 2017)

Training Offered

  • Held a workshop on RAD sequencing. Lab manager Keith Turnquist taught Wendy Stott, USGS Ann Arbor, Loren Miller, MNDNR, and Carly Graham, University of Regina, how to prepare a RAD library. Carly, Loren, and Wendy also gave hour long seminars. This workshop aligns with our lab's goal of sharing new techniques with geneticists in the region in an effort to standardize methods and help progress genetics research.
