Practical Python: Resources for analysing biological data with Python

19 March 2019

Jubilee Conference Centre, Nottingham, UK

This introductory course is aimed at biochemists, physiologists, pharmacologists and those working across more than one discipline. This practical half-day session will explore the use of modern Python and associated resources for analysing and exploring biological data in the big data world. This course will be ideal for any beginner/intermediate user of Python, with or without prior experience in other programming languages.

During this session, participants will focus on how best to solve problems using this resource. The course will cover data handling and manipulation using the Pandas library, visualisation with the Matplotlib/Pyplot library and machine learning and statistics with the Scikit-learn library. Live demonstrations will be given, as well as an open session for questions. By the end of the course, participants should be able to install a Python IDE, read data in many formats, and apply some visualisation and analysis techniques.

This half-day training workshop will run alongside the Life Sciences 2019: Post-translational modifications and cell signalling meeting.



Biochemical Society Training Days

Biochemical Society Training Days are designed to address a specific scientific training need within the bioscience community, aimed at PhD level and beyond. These events aim to create a platform for participants to gain hands-on experience, and an opportunity to ask questions and discuss problems with experts in the field.
