R is an open source statistical programming and visualization language.

R and VIVO

R provides a rich environment for data processing, visualization and analysis. Along with the R XML package for reading XML (VIVO RDF Schema is a flavor of XML) and statnet, a library for network visualization and analysis, a strong environment for development of VIVO applications can be assembled.


Mike Conlon is working on using R for VIVO to develop tools for extracting, reporting and visualizing R data. See RDF Graph Visualize Report.
