Understanding Biology with Python
Programming skills in python or other computer language is not something that immediately comes to mind when we mention specialist in cell or medical biology, or other biological disciplines. However, the effect of the digital revolution and progress in sequencing techniques make biology increasingly full of big and complicated data, which need further insights and the ability to analyze.
This summer school is dedicated to the python programming language, one of the most popular languages these days. We will discuss the added value of programming for biologists in general, how to use it for biologically relevant questions, and what kind of questions programming can address in a daily life of the biologist. The course is made of examples of the programming mostly from publicly available resources from the cell and medical biology, related to aspects of stem cells, hematopoiesis and aging. We will exercise with python programming and use solely biological examples (no cars!). Considerable time will be given to discussions.
