Python for the Life Sciences: A Gentle Introduction to Python for Life Scientists by Alexander Lancaster
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 8 MB
Overview: Treat yourself to a lively, intuitive, and easy-to-follow introduction to computer programming in Python. The book was written specifically for biologists with little or no prior experience of writing code – with the goal of giving them not only a foundation in Python programming, but also the confidence and inspiration to start using Python in their own research.
Virtually all of the examples in the book are drawn from across a wide spectrum of life science research, from simple biochemical calculations and sequence analysis, to modeling the dynamic interactions of genes and proteins in cells, or the drift of genes in an evolving population.
Best of all, Python for the Life Sciences shows you how to implement all of these projects in Python, one of the most popular programming languages for scientific computing. If you are a life scientist interested in learning Python to jump-start your research, this is the book for you.
