Successful programming bootcamp for bioinformatics

bootcamp_bioinfo_march2014

The programming bootcamp for bioinformaticians was a great success, with over 40 people learning essential skills in unix shell, Python programming and version control with Git, also as getting an introduction to bioinformatics tools. The bootcamp ran over 4 sessions in late March, we partnered with Hacker Within who provided most of the material and teaching for this course. Have a look at this post on Research Bazar about the bootcamp, including the interview of one of the participants.

This event fulfils COMBINE’s dual mission for bioinformatics students: make tools available to them to improve their research skills, and bring them together in order to improve the people networks.
