# Section 01: Python Intro

*Notes Mary Richardson (2020), and Hope Merens (2020)*

Now that we have Anaconda installed and are familiar with Jupyter Notebook, we're ready to start coding in Python!

## Python Introduction

Let's start with the basics of coding in Python. Download this Jupyter notebook: w01-section-python.ipynb. During section, we will walk through this notebook to get familiar with Python. The slides for section lecture are also available here: w01-section-python-presentation.pdf.

## Python Practice

When you are ready to jump into some coding problems, download and complete these practice problems: w01-section-problems.ipynb. This notebook includes a few toy biological problems that will test your Python skills. Ask us questions as you work through it. If you get really stuck, here are some possible solutions: w01-section-solutions.ipynb.
