R (Programming Language)

Last revised by Andrew Murphy on 21 Sep 2019

R is a programming language and free open-source software environment for statistical computing and graphics supported by the R Foundation. It is freely available under the GNU General Public License. R is a highly popular language for programming in statistics in general and bio-statistics in particular.

R documentation can be found on the official site.

The R Journal publishes open-access, refereed research of interest online.

R is considered by many to be a free version of the earlier language S, which was developed at Bell Labs.

The basic data structures of R (vectors matrices, arrays, data frames, etc.) allow for efficient functionality in digital image processing. There are specialized packages in the language related to MRI and PET image processing.
