Writing Your Thesis in R Markdown

Another option is to write your thesis using R Markdown. This might be particularly useful for you if you plan on using a number of R features in your thesis and would like to be able to change your code without having to completely update your old thesis document.

If you have worked with R before, this may be easier to work with than the LaTeX template, still usingthe same engine to typeset the thesis, allowing for a pleasant presentation of final results.

Should you wish to write your thesis in R Markdown, please go to this GitHub page for the instructions on how to use the R Markdown to write your thesis using package thesisdown

For help using the R markdown template, stop by the mLab during (virutal) open hours.
