Description:

THE PERL COURSE IS CANCELLED DUE TO FEW APPLICANTS!

Course content
Perl is the ideal programming language for biological data analysis. The course is for students with little or no prior knowledge in perl. Familiarity in using a Unix command line (e.g. Mac OSX or Linux) is a requirement for the course. It is aimed at students who need computational skills to handle large datasets. The course will follow the book “Learning Perl”. It will consist of lectures to introduce all topics and computer assignments to be completed individually after each lecture. The course will also include practical computational exercises.

To complete the course, students are expected to complete a short project, either from their own work or pre-defined.

Topics covered will include:

introduction to command line and writing perl scripts
handling scalar data, control structures
lists/arrays
subroutines
input/output
regular expressions and pattern matching
conditional operators
strings and sorting
loops
hashes
introduction to modules such as bioperl
By the end of the course, students should:

understand and be able to implement all fundamental elements of Perl programming
be able to write programs to perform common bioinformatics tasks
be able to understand and debug Perl programs
be competent using a Unix environment
Entry requirements
To get the maximum benefit from the course we would like you to
Be able to bring your own Mac or Linux laptop for the practical computational exercises. If you don’t have a Mac or Linux computer to bring please contact us at education@scilifelab.uu.se before you apply.
Be familiar in using the Unix command line (Mac OSX or Linux). We will not teach Unix in detail in the course and you will have considerable trouble to follow the practical computational exercises if you are not reasonably used to work in a Unix. Other course are available at SciLifeLab that introduce the basics in Unix.
It is strongly recommended that students read the course book “Learning Perl, 6th Edition” (Schwartz et al.) before attending the course.
Selection criteria
Selection criteria include correct entry requirements, motivation to attend the course as well as gender and geographical balance.
