RStudio Logo

RStudio is an integrated development environment (IDE)for R. It includes a console, syntax-highlighting editor that supports direct code execution, as well as tools for plotting, history, debugging and workspace management. RStudio is only used interactively and requires a graphical connection to biowulf.

Running RStudio interactively

Allocate an sinteractive session. It is generally recommended to allocate at least a small amount of lscratch for temporary storage for R.
