    Introduction to Python for Biologists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-python-for-biologists-bcd1d1d1-24fc-47b6-b586-fc239d27888e 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 complete beginners and assumes no prior programming experience. It gives an overview of the language with an emphasis on practical problem-solving, using examples and exercises drawn from various aspects of bioinformatics work. The workshop is structured so that the parts of the language most useful for bioinformatics are introduced as early as possible, and that students can start writing plausibly-useful programs after the first few sessions. After completing the workshop, students should be in a position to (1) apply the skills they have learned to tackling problems in their own research and (2) continue their Python education in a self-directed way. 2018-02-19 09:00:00 UTC 2018-02-23 17:00:00 UTC The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom EH9 3JN Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Bert Overduin - bert.overduin@ed.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsProgrammingPython
  • Data Manipulation and Visualisation with Python

    9 - 13 April 2018

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Data Manipulation and Visualisation with Python https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/data-manipulation-and-visualisation-with-python One of the strengths of the Python language is the availability of mature, high-quality libraries for working with scientific data. Integration between the most popular libraries has lead to the concept of a "scientific Python stack": a collection of packages which are designed to work well together. In this workshop we will see how to leverage these libraries to efficiently work with and visualise large volumes of data. 2018-04-09 09:00:00 UTC 2018-04-13 17:00:00 UTC The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom EH9 3JN Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Bert Overduin - bert.overduin@ed.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsProgrammingPython
  • Advanced Python for Biologists

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Advanced Python for Biologists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/advanced-python-for-biologists-3fb71294-dcb9-4381-bdae-81701ef20595 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. After completing the workshop, students should be in a position to (1) take advantage of the advanced language features in their own programs and (2) use appropriate tools when developing software programs. 2018-07-09 09:00:00 UTC 2018-07-13 17:00:00 UTC The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom EH9 3JN Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Bert Overduin - bert.overduin@ed.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsProgrammingPython
