Advanced Python for biologists (APYB02)

28 May 2018 - 1 June 2018

£275.00 - £525.00

Course overview:

Python is a dynamic, readable language that is a popular platform for all types of bioinformatics work, from simple one-off scripts to large, complex software projects. This workshop is aimed at people who already have a basic knowledge of Python and are interested in using the language to tackle larger problems. In it, we will look in detail at the parts of the language which are particularly useful in scientific programming, and at the tools Python offers for making development faster and easier. The course will use examples and exercises drawn from various aspects of bioinformatics work. After completing the workshop, students should be in a position to (1) take advantage of the advanced language features in their own programs and (2) use appropriate tools when developing software programs.

Intended Audience

This workshop is aimed at researchers and technical workers with a background in biology and a basic knowledge of Python.
