Python is a popular scripting language that is used by data professionals because of its many-popular statistical libraries. The live remote three-day lecture and hands-on computer-based laboratory workshop is designed to introduce bench scientists to the powerful tasks that can be taken up with Python by learning everything from language syntax to data manipulation to visualization: all in the context of relevant biological problems! Hands-on topics will include data manipulation, building useful functions to extract data, import/export/writing of data to files, and beginning algorithmic approaches to bioinformatic problems.
