Python for downstream data analysis

This course is organized over two full days. We will start with a brief recap of  the basics of Python, followed by exploring several libraries for data manipulation and visualization. With the help of plenty of hands-on exercises, you will learn to fetch biological data and sequencing files from online databases, and be able to parse and analyze this data. There will be time to highlight specific requests of topics from participants. 




  • Use libraries for advanced data manipulation and visualization
  • Working with biological data using Biopython
  • Being able to write scripts and functions from scratch for specific bioinformatics problems
