The Monash Bioinformatics Platform and Monash eResearch are running a one-day Intro to Python workshop on the 20th April.
The Monash Bioinformatics Platform and Monash eResearch want to help make introductory bioinformatic approaches part of the research landscape in Biomedicine. To do this, a foundation level of expertise amongst as many researchers as possible is an important step forward. The Python programming language is versatile and popular in the bioinformatics community.
This workshop aims to equip participants with the fundamentals of programming and give them the skills needed to take bioinformatic approaches to research questions.
The workshop will be taught in a similar style to Software Carpentry workshops. Software Carpentry's mission is to help scientists and engineers get more research done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic lab skills for scientific computing.
Who: The course is aimed at graduate students and other researchers. You don't need to have any previous knowledge of the tools that will be presented at the workshop.
