Python For Life Scientists

At Amber Biology we are very excited to start teaching our course Python For Life Scientists at Boston Children's Hospital on Feb. 13th. This 8-week course is a combination of classroom teaching and workshop sessions, and is based upon our book Python For The Life Sciences. Like the book, we created this course specifically for biologists with little or no prior experience writing code. 

At most colleges unfortunately, courses in coding and basic computer science are still not a part of the core curriculum for the life sciences, yet biologists are increasingly discovering the need to move beyond calculators and spreadsheets in order to handle their data and the more quantitative aspects of their own research. Our aim on this course, is to provide the life scientist with a foundation in Python sufficient for them to be able to start using it in their own research.

Unfortunately this current session of the course has already received about twice the number of applicants than we have places available, so enrollment is closed. If however you would like to have this course taught on-site at your organization, please contact us so that we can schedule a class for you.
