CS103A Perl for Biologists, Level 3
From Bioinformatics.Org Wiki
This course aims at teaching Biologists how to use Perl as a programming language to automate certain tasks in their research. Advanced topics in regular expressions, objects, modules will be covered, along with tips and tricks to fine-tune programs and resolve bugs.
The course is divided into 4 sessions, roughly 1-1.5 hours each. The 5th session is reserved for project discussion and any other issues the students may want to discuss.
- Sessions 1 will cover all topics of the level 1 and 2 classes, with some new case studies to understand the best use of modules for developing solutions in bioinformatics
- Session 2 will cover regular expressions in much detail, using them in case studies involving gene annotation and literature mining
- Session 3 will cover object oriented programming once again, and some new case studies will be covered, depicting solutions to real life situations
- Session 4 will cover exception handling and debugging. Software development project using Bioperl will be done.
Level 1 & 2 or equivalent training is required
