16. Data Analysis for the Life Sciences by Rafael A. Irizarry & Michael I. Love

Data-Analysis-for-the-Life-SciencesData Analysis for the Life Sciences covers several of the statistical concepts and data analytic skills needed to succeed in data-driven life science research. The authors proceed from relatively basic concepts related to computed p-values to advanced topics related to analyzing highthroughput data.

The authors include the R code that performs this analysis and connect the lines of code to the statistical and mathematical concepts explained. The book was created using the R markdown language

The book has a suggested price of $39.95 but there’s no minimum price.

17. The Undergraduate Guide to R by Trevor Martin

Undergraduate-Guide-RThe Undergraduate Guide to R is a beginner’s introduction to R. This manual is designed so that no prior knowledge of programming is required or assumed but you’ll need basic general computer skills and statistics knowledge.

It teaches you how to install and run R, learn enough R to be able to perform most common data manipulating, analyzing, comparing, and viewing tasks. It gives a solid grounding together with tips and suggestions how to program in R.

The book is released under an open source license.

19. Statistical Inference via Data Science by Chester Ismay & Albert Y. Kim

Statistical-Inference-Data-ScienceStatistical Inference via Data Science is intended to be a gentle introduction to the practice of analyzing data and answering questions using data the way data scientists, statisticians, data journalists, and other researchers would.

This is very much an introductory text. No algebra, no calculus, and no prior programming/coding experience is required.
