Inhalte/Content Students will learn how to write powerful scripts to automatize repetitive tasks and analyze diverse datasets from disparate resources and interfacing more complex datasets and databases. The module includes a more comprehensive applied project using Python programming. Biocomputing II is aimed at students who are comfortable with Python scripting (or who have significant experience in another programming language) and who wish to extend their skills to more advanced topics and data analysis. Typically taken by a small number of students, and runs in parallel to Biocomputing I (same times and places).
