Working with data can often be challenging. Data are rarely in the format most convenient for your analysis, and there can be a lot of work that goes into structuring your data to make sure you can explore and highlight the most important parts. In this lesson we will use the Palmer penguins dataset, which contains observational data on arctic penguins to learn how to work with and visualize data. This lesson, developed by The Carpentries, focuses on using the tidyverse packages in R, an opinionated collection of packages that are tailored to the needs of data scientists. Can you organize your project in an orderly fashion and access all the files? Can you navigate a dataset in R? Can you add columns and change column names? Can you efficiently summarize the data? Can you create visualizations to show key aspects of the data? At the end of this lesson, you should be able to do all these things!
