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.

Bioinformatics with Linux and Python (BILP01)

11 May 2020 - 15 May 2020
PR informatics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: A fundamental part of bioinformatics (in contrast to simply computational biology) is the idea of scaling and automation. We want to arrange our tools into pipelines which can be executed with minimal supervision. Reliable automation of this type is key to many of the things that we want from our analyses; chiefly the ability to reproduce our results, and to extend them to other datasets. In this course we will examine two different systems for automating bioinformatic analyses.…
