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.
