You can leverage the full power of the R statistical programming environment to analyze and visualize datasets on LabKey Server. The results of R scripts can be displayed in LabKey reports that reflect live data updated every time the script is run. Reports may contain text, tables, or charts created using common image formats such as jpeg, png and gif. In addition, the Rlabkey package can be used to insert, update and/or delete data stored on a LabKey Server using R, provided you have sufficient permissions to do so.

An administrator must install and configure R on LabKey Server and grant access to users to create and run R scripts on live datasets. Loading of additional packages may also be necessary, as described in the installation topic. Configuration of multiple R engines on a server is possible, but within any folder only a single R engine configuration can be used.
