For the past two years, I have used my expertise in bioinformatics, particularly my familiarity with R and Bioconductor, to assist in teaching bioinformatics courses for the MOAC MSc students and first year System's Biology students. I assisted by holding classes on how to get started using the statistical programming language R and its bioinformatics packkage set, Bioconductor. I also assisted with student's project work in various work sessions throughout the course.
Tutors: Hugo Van Den Berg, Helen Bird

Assisted teaching of MOAC course CH923 by organising an introduction to R session, together with Martin Edwards and Peter Cock, in which we outlined the basic usages of the statistical programming language R and how it can be used in bioinformatic based data analysis.
Course notes and an introduction to R can be found here.
Also helped out at help classes, run by Andrew Mead, to assist MOAC students in solving example bioinformatic problems.
