Advanced Python for Biologists

Mon, 2019-07-22 to Fri, 2019-07-26
This Advanced level workshop is ideal for researchers and technical workers with a background in biology and a basic knowledge of Python, to develop bigger or more complicated programs and increase skills and knowledge about the language, including object-oriented approaches to programming. 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. This workshop is aimed at people who already have a basic knowledge of Python and are interested in using the language to tackle larger problems. In it, we will look in detail at the parts of the language which are particularly useful in scientific programming, and at the tools Python offers for making development faster and easier. The workshop will use examples and exercises drawn from various aspects of bioinformatics work.
