# Introduction

Sweave is a utility within R that allows you to generate and document statistical reports in the same file.

It's an important tool for reproducible research in bioinformatics and statistics, but is tricky to learn at first.

In this class, you'll work through simple exercises designed to give you a gentle introduction to running and documenting R code with Sweave.
