In this project-based course, you will create a Shiny app to plot gene expression data (Real-Time PCR) from a published manuscript. You will build the Shiny app from scratch and handle every component of Shiny. The project covers data processing and collecting feedback from the user to build and finetune the output. In this course, we will be concerned with the optimal use of inputs and outputs. Instead of building a lot of inputs and outputs, we will use a limited number of components and recycle some even seven times for different purposes.
