Dear all,

We are pleased to inform you that we will run two Python courses this year in Berlin:

  1. Introduction to Python for biologists. 2-6 October 2017

Instructor: Dr. Martin Jones (founder, Python for biologists:

This course is aimed at all researchers and technical workers with a background in biology who want to learn programming. Students should have enough biological background to appreciate the examples and exercise problems (i.e. they should know about DNA and protein sequences, what translation is, and what introns and exons are). No previous programming experience or computer skills (beyond the ability to use a text editor) are necessary, but you'll need to have a laptop with Python installed.


For more information:

  1. Advanced Python for biologists. 13-17 November 2017

Instructor: Dr. Martin Jones (founder, Python for biologists:

The advanced course is aimed at people who want to develop bigger or more complicated programs in Python, or to learn more about the language, or to explore different approaches (object-oriented, functional) to programming. The material covered is very general purpose and can be applied to any kind of problem. Students should have enough biological/bioinformatics background to appreciate the examples and exercise problems (i.e. they should know what a protein accession number, BLAST report, and FASTA sequence is). They should also have basic Python experience (the Introduction to Python for Biologists course will fulfil these requirements). Students should be familiar with the use of lists, loops, functions and conditions in Python and have written at least a few small programs from scratch.


For more information:

Upcoming courses and workshops:

Genomic Data Visualization and Interpretation (11-15 September 2017).

Instructors: Dr. Malachi Griffith, Dr. Obi Griffith, Mr. Zachary Skidmore (Washington University School of Medicine. USA).

Statistics for biologists using R (18-23 September 2017).

Instructor: Dr. Ken Aho (Idaho State University, USA).
