  • Introduction to Python for Biologists

    12 - 16 August 2019

    Liverpool, United Kingdom

    Introduction to Python for Biologists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-python-for-biologists-965f36b3-e040-43cd-bb06-f4e5e3cc588e Registration fee: £500 Places: 15 (first come, first served) Application deadline: 14th June 2019 DESCRIPTION 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. The instructor of the workshop is the Founder of Python for Biologists, Dr. Martin Jones. Format The workshop will take place over 5 days. Each day will consist of 2 half-day sessions, each consisting of a ~1 hour lecture followed by 2 hours of practical exercises. It is important that attendees attend each session as they will use examples and exercises that build on the materials from previous sessions. For more information and a detailed syllabus please see the following link: https://pythonforbiologists.com/introduction-to-python-for-biologists Who should attend This workshop is aimed at all researchers and technical workers with a background in biology who want to learn programming. The syllabus has been planned with complete beginners in mind. Requirements Attendees will require a level of biological and bioinformatics background so they can appreciate the examples and exercises (i.e. they should know what a protein accession number, BLAST report, and FASTA sequence is). Attendees will require the ability to us a text editor (e.g. nano, vim, or gedit). No previous programming knowledge is required. Attendees will use their own laptops during the workshop. Instructions for any software to be installed will be sent out prior to the course. If you are not sure if this course is suitable for you please do not hesitate to contact Dr Martin Jones (martin@pythonforbiologists.com) Please fill in the following form (https://forms.gle/mkjiASxS7sKBxeGo7) if you would like to register for the Introduction to Python for Biologists workshop. Applicants will be asked to pay a registration fee of £500. After the application deadline (14th of June) or when all places are fill applicants will be asked to pay for the workshop. Once your fee is paid your place on the course will be confirmed. 2019-08-12 09:00:00 UTC 2019-08-16 17:00:00 UTC Centre for Genomic Research, University of Liverpool (https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/genomic-research/) 126 Mount Pleasant, 126, Mount Pleasant, Liverpool, United Kingdom 126 Mount Pleasant, 126, Mount Pleasant Liverpool Merseyside United Kingdom L3 5SR University of Liverpool [] [] 15 workshops_and_courses [] pythonbioinformaticsprogrammingintrobeginner

    Getting started on the high-throughput data processing platform https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/getting-started-on-the-high-throughput-data-processing-platform Vastly increasing data volumes and data complexity imply that researchers require novel solutions to large scale cluster computing. This workshop aims to provide an introduction and hands-on experience with our new solution to this problem: “a new and versatile platform… The post Getting started on the high-throughput data processing platform appeared first on Dutch Techcentre for Life Sciences. 2019-08-28 09:00:00 UTC 2019-08-28 00:00:00 UTC SURF office, Utrecht, Netherlands, SURF office, Netherlands SURF office, Utrecht, Netherlands SURF office Netherlands [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
