3.13 Lab assignments workflow

You can repeat the same steps from earlier for creating a new RStudio project for your lab work. But this time when you create the project, specify your lab assignment directory “BIOL202_assignments” as the location.

You can optionally create subdirectories also, perhaps one for each of the lab assignments.

The key difference in the assignments workflow is that for each assignment you’ll start with a new R Markdown (Rmd) file, which you’ll download from Canvas under the “assignments” link. The document will include the questions you are to answer, and you simply edit / add to the document as you answer them.

Instructions for this will come in a later tutorial.
