CCP Course “Python for Scientists”
19 – 20 October 2022, BIOCEV, Vestec /
2-day course introducing participants to Python is organized by the Czech Centre for Phenogenomics (IMG CAS).
In recent years, Python has become the most popular programming language thanks to a simplified syntax (easy to learn for beginners) and an extremely large ecosystem of libraries and packages. Genomic data manipulation, image analysis, and training of artificial neural networks are today usually powered by the same engine – Python.
We will start with the basics and focus on researchers’ most pressing needs: data manipulation, visualization, and access to databases.
DAY 1 (OCTOBER 19, 2022):
- Variable, Numbers, Strings, and Booleans
- Control Flow
