A primer for Python in life sciences

PLoS Computational Biology has just published an interesting primer for people approaching the “wonderful world” of Python in life sciences. Here it is the paper: http://compbiol.plosjournals.org/perlserv/?request=get-pdf&file=10.1371_journal.pcbi.0030199-L.pdf

This is author’s introduction to the paper:

“The purpose of this tutorial is to provide a bird’s-eye view of the Python language, showing the basics of the language and the capabilities it offers. Main data structures and flow control statements are presented. After these basic concepts, topics such as file access, functions, and modules are covered in more detail. Finally, Biopython, a collection of tools for computational molecular biology, is introduced and its use shown with two scripts. For more advanced topics in Python, there are references at the end.

Enjoy!
