Dr. Martin Jones


Works at – Lecturer at the University of Edinburgh

Teaches – Introduction to Python for Biologists (IPYB)

Martin started his programming career by learning Perl during the course of his PhD in evolutionary biology, and started teaching other people to program soon after. Since then he has taught introductory programming to hundreds of biologists, from undergraduates to PIs, and has maintained a philosophy that programming courses must be friendly, approachable, and practical.

In his academic career, Martin mixed research and teaching at the University of Edinburgh, culminating in a two year stint as Lecturer in Bioinformatics. He now runs programming courses for biological researchers as a full time freelancer.

The Practice of RADseq: Population Genomics Analysis with Stacks (RDSQ01)

23 September 2019 - 27 September 2019
PR informatics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: This course will focus on population genomics analysis using Stacks version 2 software. The course will include a discussion of RAD sequencing, including the different protocols and the sequencing platforms used. We will focus on the key aspects of the molecular protocol to ensure a successful data analysis. The remainder of the course will include an introduction to UNIX followed by practice with RADseq data analysis. We will focus first on how the major Stacks algorithms work, followed…

Introduction to Bioinformatics using Linux (IBUL04)

30 September 2019 - 4 October 2019
PR informatics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: Most high-throughput bioinformatics work these days takes place on the Linux command line. The programs which do the majority of the computational heavy lifting — genome assemblers, read mappers, and annotation tools — are designed to work best when used with a command-line interface. Because the command line can be an intimidating environment, many biologists learn the bare minimum needed to get their analysis tools working. This means that they miss out on the power of Linux to…
