Perl is the ideal programming language for biological data analysis. The course is for students with little or no prior knowledge in perl. Familiarity in using a command line would be beneficial. It is aimed at students who need computational skills to handle large datasets. The course will follow the book “Learning Perl”. It will consist of lectures to introduce all topics and computer assignments to be completed individually after each lecture. It will also include interactive sessions in a computer lab.
To complete the course, students are expected to complete a short project, either from their own work or pre-defined. October 19 is dedicated for students to work on these projects with the help from teachers. Participation is not compulsory.

Selection criteria include correct entry requirements, motivation to attend the course as well as gender and geographical balance.
