Wisconsin Fish Education Activities

WI Coop Fish graduate student working in the field.

Courses Taught

  • Advanced Studies in Fisheries Management (Dan Isermann 2018)
  • 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)
