- An Introduction to Shiny, R Markdown, and HTML Widgets for R With Applications in Drug Development by John Wang
This is an overview of Shiny, R Markdown and HTML Widgets for the R user community at PharmaSUG China on Thursday, Aug 30th 2018. This is a great opportunity to learn and get inspired about new capabilities for creating compelling analyses with applications in drug development. No prior knowledge of R, RStudio or Shiny is needed. This short course will provide an introduction to flexible and powerful tools for statistical analysis, reproducible research and interactive visualizations. The hands-on course will include an overview of how to build Shiny apps, R Markdown documents and visualizations using HTML Widgets for R. Immunogenicity examples will be reviewed and generated for each topic.
R Markdown is an authoring format that enables easy creation of dynamic documents, presentations, and reports from R. It combines the core syntax of markdown with embedded R code chunks that are run so their output can be included in the final document. R Markdown documents help to support reproducible research and can be automatically regenerated whenever underlying R code or data changes. Various types of R Markdown output will be covered, including blogdown and bookdown. An R Notebook is an R Markdown document with chunks that can be executed independently and interactively, with output visible immediately beneath the input. R Notebooks can be thought of as a special execution mode for R Markdown documents. The OpenFDA package and immunogenicity assessments will be used for the course examples regarding R Markdown reports and R Notebooks.
