Bioinformatics Summer Coding Bootcamp
Learn to Code this Summer
Times: Tuesday June 23 to Thursday July 23
This camp will introduce students with no or limited previous programming experience to Python with a focus on tools to solve bioinformatics problems. For the time of the class you will be enrolled as a non-matriculated graduate student at Drexel University. The course is available for all students currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program or are working professionals.
In this course, students will learn:
How to install coding tools and use them effectively
Python programming basics including conditionals, loops, functions, libraries, and classes
Strategies for using Python to answer different bioinformatics questions
Basic plotting and data analysis with Python
The class is an online class.
Adam Ertel, PhD received his BS in Electrical Engineering from the University of Connecticut and his PhD in Biomedical Engineering/Bioinformatics form Drexel University in 2008. Dr. Ertel is working at the Cancer Genomics Laboratory at Thomas Jefferson University.
Dr. Ertel's main interests are in bioinformatics and pathway-based approaches to gene expression profiling, gene interactions and molecular profiles in cancer, and SNP genotype and copy number analysis for genome-wide association studies.
Fees are approx. $1200 for tuition. There is an optional $70 textbook fee, all other course materials are free. The workshop runs for 5 weeks, every Tuesday and Thursday, from 6 -7 pm.
The credit associated with the class can be applied to the Drexel Bioinformatics Graduate Certificate, or any Drexel Master Degree. New degree in the fall of 2020: MS Degree in Bioinformatics, offered by the School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems. This new degree combines modules in Bioinformatics, Data Science, Drug Discovery and Neurotechnology.
