I8: Introduction to Python Programming for Structural & Quantitative Biology and Image Processing – 45249
(3 days; 1 CP; Fall 2021)
Timm Maier, Adam Mazur, Michael Podvinec
Analysis of structural and biophysical data with Python. Numerical Python modules: NumPy, SciPy, Pandas. Data visualization: Matplotlib
Working with protein structures and sequences: Biopython, OpenStructure and PyMOL
Practical session, ideally with application to participants' research projects
The course will cover the essentials of practical Python programming for structural biology. It is designed for PhD and MSc students who already have basic knowledge in Python programming and would like to learn how to enhance their skills to solve realistic cases in the field of structural biology. The focus will be put on acquiring practical knowledge about Python modules relevant to structural biology, numerical analysis and visualization. The course days consist of an introductory presentation on the basic concepts and best practices, followed by practical exercises, during which participants can apply the acquired skills.
