Python for Life Scientists

When Where
Thursday 10 November, 2016 - Friday 11 November, 2016 Amsterdam

Tailored for life scientists with little or no prior programming experience, this course, organized by ENPICOM, is driven by real-life use cases. Participants will learn by doing, completing snippets of code that they will be able to reuse in their everyday tasks. Extensive use of IPython Notebook (Jupyter) will encourage to annotate and document the code, building the basis for sound and reproducible data analysis.
