Question: How can I upload Python 2.7 files form which I need help plotting time series trajectories for mRNA levels from yeast microarray data?

I have been given lots of Python 2.7 files from which I am supposed to be able to plot the trajectories for mRNA levels from yeast microarray datasets. There are about 20 files. How can I share my files here on this platform so that I can get help in learning how to generate plots from them using Python 2.7?

Since I am still very new to Python and programming in general I am ideally looking for somebody, who could train me remotely using Team Viewer and Skype to make sure that I can generate the plots properly.

If you can make yourself available to train me life in real time in getting my data plotted properly could you please email me directly at because my screen reader software, which I must use because I am almost blind, works much better in my Gmail email browser environment than in this communication text box window.? Learning how to plot in Python 2.7 may be too complex to get explained sufficiently well in written language alone. Ideally, I'd love to have a Graphical User Interface (GUI) instead of the Python Command Line because this would allow me to generate plots to my PI's liking much faster.

I thank you very much in advance for considering to help me out with learning this skill despite my visual disability.

Best regards,

Hi Thomas,

I strongly encourage you to try and find someone local to help you with this part of your project. Making plots is one of those things that works best when you're literally sitting together with a lab mate or colleague. The colleague needn't necessarily need to know how to plot things in python themselves, but they at least need to know enough to say things like "the color of X needs to be changed", or "this type of data is better represented as a joy plot". It's best if that person is familiar both with your PI and the gist of what you're working on. I unfortunately don't have high hopes for something along those lines working well remotely, particularly with people unfamiliar with your PI.
