BIOF 101
Introductory Coding Skills

This course will teach students key programming skills needed for success in biomedical research or other coding applications. The assignments will be done in Python, which is one of the most popular and widely-used programming languages (redmonk.com/sogrady/2020/02/28/language-rankings-1-20/), but the concepts learned in the course will be transferrable to many other languages, allowing students to more easily transition to another language if they so desire. The assignments will also encourage students to think about scientific applications for programming
