This book introduces programming concepts to life science researchers, bioinformaticians, support staff, students, and everyone who is interested in applying programming to solve biologically-related problems. Python is the chosen programming language for this task because it is both powerful and easy-to-use.

It begins with the basic aspects of the language (like data types and control structures) up to essential skills on today's bioinformatics tasks like building web applications, using relational database management systems, XML and version control. There is a chapter devoted to Biopython ( since it can be used for most of the tasks related to bioinformatics data processing.

There is a section with applications with source code, featuring sequence manipulation, filtering vector contamination, calculating DNA melting temperature, parsing a genbank file, inferring splicing sites, and more.

There are questions at the end of every chapter and odd numbered questions are answered in an appendix making this text suitable for classroom use.

This book can be used also as a reference material as it includes Richard Gruet's Python Quick Reference, and the Python Style Guide.
