I would recommend taking this class with Professor Allen, as opposed to other Bio professors. He's an easy grader, the labs never take that long, and he is a super nice guy. If you interested in learning how to use R studio, this course is for you. If you interested in the more fundamental statistics behind the computer program, take a Stats class in the Math department.

I believe Dave Allen was teaching 3 sections a day and for this reason I understand his slightly lackluster teaching style. However, he was fair, kind, and his overall affect was pleasent. I was able to succeed in this class with minimal effort and while my interset in the subject was not high there was nothing about this class that should steer someone away from taking this pre-requisite with Dave Allen

The class was broken into two pieces. The first half of the day was with David Allen and the Second Half with professor L'Roe. The limited amount of time in J term forced the teaching and lectures to be rushed. Furthermore, the afternoon professor was new to R making the teaching not as helpful as I would've hoped. I recommend taking data science during a regular semester instead of during J-term.
