Do you know that the human genomic sequence if printed out in a normal text font, would stretch for about 5000 km, which is the distance from London to Montreal, Los Angeles to Panama,Accra to Cape Town, Tokyo to Calcutta.
This same sequence would fill about 3000 books the size of a normal book.
Understanding and analysing this sequence is clearly going to be a huge task.
But with the advent of powerful tools and databases we can be able to grabs a simple understanding of some aspect of it.
In this introductory course we will explore the various Python tools and libraries used in analysing DNA,RNA and genome sequence.
Hence if you are interested in analysing large sum of biological data or are curious about DNA sequence,protein synthesis,and how vaccines are designed. Then this course will is for you.
Whether you are a student or a researcher, data scientist or bioinformatics,computational biologist, this course will serve as a helpful guide when doing bioinformatics in python. We will be exploring bioinformatics with BioPython,Biotite,BioJulia and more.
Data is everywhere, biological data is in every living organism.Let us analyse it for useful insights
NOTE: This is an introductory course structured like a reference material for those with little to no experience with bioinformatics.
Join us as we explore the world of biological data with Python
