Description

Introduction to Python for genetics is the name of the course to get familiar with the Python programming language for genetics, published by Udemy Academy. Many students and professionals of biological sciences are not familiar with programming. However, the increasing amount of biological data generated each year, along with advances in biotechnology and the growing role of informatics in the life sciences, make programming knowledge essential for biologists, biotechnologists, and more! In this introductory course, you will learn how to model simple genetic problems using the Python programming language.

First, you will learn how to implement statements or data structures in Python. And finally, using the knowledge we have gained so far, we model some problems in the field of genetics. Since this is an introductory course, we will not use third-party libraries such as Biopython, matplotlib, pandas, etc., but will only use built-in commands, modules, and data structures. In the first part of the course, we have a very short introduction to update some concepts of genetics like gene, allele, frequency, etc…

In the second part of the course, you will learn basic commands, data. Python Structures and Functions In these chapters, you should apply the knowledge you have gained so far in the chapter to solve some genetics problems in Python! There are over 20 exercises and challenges to be solved throughout the course!
