Software engineering perl, John Innes Centre, JIC Any students, postdocs or RAs who have an interest in programming and who intend to carry out computational analysis of their experimental data. Perl is often used for preparing input files for more specialized software such as R, and also to post-process the output from R and various other bioinformatics tools. It is a glue language allowing you to build pipelines of analyses of arbitrary complexity. This two day course is planned to be a gentle introduction to the basic concepts of Perl and will also introduce you to the BioPerl library of modules.
