Dr. Paul Murrell will offer his "Graphics in R" course
online at statistics.com May 5 – June 2.

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

Dr. Murrell, the author of "R Graphics," 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).  Direct interaction (Q&A) with the instructor
throughout the four week period takes place via a private
discussion board.  Expect to spend about 5-15 hours per
week; there are no set hours when you must be online.
