This is a course intended for beginners interested in applying Python in Bioinformatics. We will go over basic Python concepts, useful Python libraries for bioinformatics/ML, and going through several mini-projects that will use these Python/ML concepts. These mini-projects include a sequence analysis (with no libraries) Python example, a Python sequence analysis example using libraries, and a basic Sklearn Machine Learning example.

My main area of focus is bioinformatics/computational biology. I have a lot of experience in bioinformatics research as I have worked at several labs (notably UCSD and Scripps Research) and am in the process of publishing a research paper in bioinformatics. I also have experience in tutoring and hosting workshops in bioinformatics or related subjects.
