Thanks to the Sweave package, LaTeX and R code can be combined in one document. If programmed correctly, the code will automatically run all analysis, produce plots and tables and format them into a professional document (following some pre-defined style). Such system is basis of what is called “Reproducible research” - fully documented and reproducible research analysis and reporting. The objective of this course is to train participants to use LaTeX in combination with R to produce such reproducible documents.
