INTRODUCTION TO PROGRAMMING FOR BIOINFORMATICS USING JAVA - NEW REGISTRATION DEADLINE!

March 27 - 29, 2019 | CIBIO-InBIO, Vairão, Portugal

 

 

This course will introduce students to the fundamentals of programming for bioinformatics using the Java programming language. Many of the concepts covered will be readily transferable to other languages. The course will largely focus on the Java language basics including: data types; program control structures; and object-oriented programming features of the language, with an emphasis on usage within areas of bioinformatics, for example file manipulation, package use and calling external software. By the end of the course students will have had a primer on creating programmatic solutions to real world problems within the scope of their research.
