Scientific Programming for Systems Biologists

Summary: Scientific Programming
for Systems Biologists
István Albert
Bioinformatics Consulting Center
Huck Institute for Life Sciences
A bottleneck in science
The inability to perform simple tasks quickly
- Limited amount of time and energy per day, spend it wisely
- Programming is easy - getting started is more difficult
- Goal is not to become a "programmer", but someone who
can solve problems via programming.
"Nuts and Bolts" Approach
- Lots of examples, cookbook like demonstrations
- This is not "Bioinformatics" - rather "Applied Informatics"
- You might already be familiar with programming concepts
Programming is about decomposing a problem
to many, very simple, unambiguous steps
Before your start
- Like any craftsman you need to have the basic tools and
basic knowledge
