The best way to learn how to program is to do something useful, so this introduction to Python is built around a common scientific task: data analysis.

Our real goal isn’t to teach you Python, but to teach you the basic concepts that all programming depends on. We use Python in our lessons because:

  • we have to use something for examples;
  • it’s free, well-documented, and runs almost everywhere;
  • it has a large (and growing) user base among scientists; and
  • experience shows that it’s easier for novices to pick up than most other languages.

But the two most important things are to use whatever language your colleagues are using, so that you can share your work with them easily, and to use that language well.

Please visit the workshop website for more information.
You can preview the lesson to learn more about content.
Please install Python on your laptop prior to arrival. Also follow these setup instructions to prepare for the workshop.

We'll meet in the breezeway bioinformatics training room from 9am to 4:30pm on Tuesday and Wednesday, February 6-7th. JAX employees can find the bioinformatics training room in building 1, unit 5 on this campus map. Visitors should bring photo ID and meet at the visitor entrance by 8:30am.
