Skimming #rstats on Twitter

by Joseph Rickert

Even when filtering by the relatively sober #rstats hashtag, I find twitter to be the stream of consciousness of an undisciplined collective mind: disjoint and ephemeral. Nevertheless, on any given day some useful R resources float by, and it is frequently the case that interesting items disappear downstream before I can record them. Here are a few I did manage to fish out recently.

On May 12, @AedinCulhane announced that Bioconductor is seeking new members for its advisory board. Read about the positions, the process and make your nominations here.
