Quick and clean: advanced Python for data science in biology

The course is built around Python philosophy of being quick and clean (the so called Zen of Python) and thus assumes anything taking more than three days to learn is probably not worth the effort. For convenience it is structured based on the industry way of classifying big data jobs: data analytics, data science, data engineering. Application deadline: May 14.

Introduction to Genome Annotation- COURSE CANCELLED!

The focus of this NBIS course will be on non-model eukaryote organisms, and in particular the structural annotation of protein coding genes. We will use de novo gene finders, protein alignments and RNA-seq data to infer the structure of genes, and show how to combine these different lines of evidence to get the most stable and informative annotation. COURSE CANCELLED
