Overview Overview

This is a practical course, which shows why programming is a powerful tool in the context of solving biological problems. During the course participants will be taught the Python programming language, a language widely considered both powerful as well as easy to use. This course might be considered as a demonstration how bioinformatics improves biologists lives.

The course is designed and aimed for people without computer science background who want to learn programming.

This course is suited for:

  • Researchers dealing with biological data.
  • Scientists who would like to learn how to automate everyday tasks and analyse data.
  • Managers who want to learn how programming improves workflows and conducting projects.

By the end of the course, participants will be able to write short programs, which will allow them to manipulate, analyse and deal with biological data and present results in a graphical format.
