This hands-on workshop will introduce the building blocks of the Python scripting environment. Participants will learn about basic programming concepts including simple and complex data types, conditionals and looping that are applicable to Python and other languages.
Prior to joining the QFAB team as a computational biologist in 2014, Mike held positions at University of Medicine and Dentistry, New Jersey (2009-2010) and at Academia Sinica, Taiwan (2011-2013). He brings expertise in handling and analysing both microarray and next generation sequencing with various tools and programming languages (Java, Perl and R). He is fascinated by tackling genomic data with interdisciplinary knowledge. He is also interested in regulation of miRNA in apoptotic pathways.
