Goals

  1. Provide examples of using R to access VIVO data. Using the toolkit, R programmers will be able to run SPARQL queries from R, create R data structures from VIVO data, and use R visualization capabilities to create additional visualizations
  2. Create visualizations of VIVO data using R

Description

R provides a rich environment for data processing, visualization and analysis. Along with the R XML package for reading XML (VIVO RDF Schema is a flavor of XML) and statnet, a library for network visualization and analysis, a strong environment for development of VIVO applications can be assembled.

Features

  • Provides the foundation for using R for VIVO to develop tools for extracting, reporting and visualizing R data. See RDF Graph Visualize Report.

Documentation

You can download R for Windows, Linux or Mac from http://www.r-project.org. Once R is installed, you can execute the R commands below to install the XML package and the statnet package.
