Everyday Bioinformatics analysis involves the extensive study and analysis of huge biological datasets. Programming languages like Python have made it easy to perform analysis on huge biological data sets. Python has become a staple in data science and bioinformatics, allowing bioinformatics data analysts and other professionals to use the language to conduct complex statistical calculations, create genomic data visualizations, build machine learning algorithms, manipulate and analyze genomic data, and complete other biological data-related tasks.

BioCode is offering a Beginners Python for Bioinformatics course in which you’ll learn various concepts related to writing customized scripts in Python language, Python data structures such as lists, strings, dictionaries and more. You’ll also learn how to read/write Bioinformatics files, work with loops and how to control the flow of your program and script.. The simple syntax and high-level data structures of Python makes it easy for computational biologists to develop programming skills, enabling them to interact with data programmatically and eventually develop code on their own.

This course is for absolute beginners in bioinformatics scripting and you don’t require any prior knowledge of scripting or even bioinformatics to get started with this course. Python is a great general-purpose scripting language that’s becoming the programming language of choice for most bioinformaticians. This course will also provide you with a great foundation and understanding of biological scripting in Python.

This course will include the following sections:
