Edinburgh Genomics (part of The University of Edinburgh) offers a comprehensive range of Python programming workshops. All of these are taught by Dr. Martin Jones, founder of Python for Biologists and writer of several Python books.
Introduction to Python for Biologists (12-16 Dec 2016) 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.
Advanced Python for Biologists (24-28 July 2017) is aimed at people who already have a basic knowledge of Python and are interested in using the language to tackle larger problems. In it, we will look in detail at the parts of the language which are particularly useful in scientific programming, and at the tools Python offers for making development faster and easier.
Data Manipulation and Visualisation with Python (10-14 July 2017) is aimed at people who want to explore datasets, find patterns, and produce figures and charts. In it, we will be using a set of Python libraries that are specifically designed for data exploration and visualisation. The actual code that we write will be relatively simple.
