Workshop: Python for Biologists


Half-day workshop for biologists to learn the basics of Python. No prior knowledge of the programming language is required.

The workshop 'Python for Biologists' is intended as a basic Python tutorial, not assuming any prior knowledge of the programming language. It is however useful and desired for participants to have had prior exposure to a different programming language (such as R, bash, Perl, etc.). During this half-day workshop we will cover the basic python syntax, starting with the basic objects such as strings, lists, dictionaries and arrays. During the workshop students will learn how to import packages into python, enabling a variety of third party functions, with a focus on common applications in biology (packages related to sequence data, and reading of data frames). There is potential for a follow up workshop at a later point, starting at a slightly more advanced level.

Recommended background: No Python knowledge required, but previous exposure to other programming languages desired

Course level: PhD level (motivated Master's students welcome)

Fee: No fee

Food: Lunch will be provided for all course participants

Application: A short motivation (5 lines stating goals and expectations) and a 1 page CV should be submitted to matthias.obst@marine.gu.se latest by 31st October 2018.
