Introduction to Python for biologists (IPYB06)

10 June 2019 - 14 June 2019

£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. It gives an overview of the language with an emphasis on practical problem-solving, using examples and exercises drawn from various aspects of bioinformatics work. After completing the workshop, students should be in a position to (1) apply the skills they have learned to tackle problems in their own research and (2) continue their Python education in a self-directed way. In biology Python is often applied to sequence analysis and data manipulation e.g. calculating base composition statistics, removing adapter sequences, translating DNA to protein, counting kmers, filtering tables etc. In this course we use these applications as examples during the exercises as a way of illustrating how to use the tools that Python has because it makes sense given the background of most of the people who attend. However, it should be possible to apply what you learn to any type of programming problem.

Intended Audience

This workshop is aimed at all researchers and technical workers with a background in biology who want to learn programming. The syllabus has been planned with complete beginners in mind.
