R has become an important tool for quantitative research and data analysis in many fields.

See this tutorial for step-by-step instructions on how to set up and use R effectively on midway2. This tutorial should also be easily transferrable to midway3 as R is set up similarly on midway3.

To find the list of currently available R modules, run:

module avail R

The RStudio IDE is also available as rstudio modules:

module avail rstudio

When using RStudio, we recommend connecting to the RCC cluster via ThinLinc.
