Pedro Fernandes's insight:

An iteresting starting point for Bioinformatics training. Self-paced, self-assessed, LOW COST, for EVERYBODY.

 

I think that it can start a whole new stream of ways to reach a wide audience in an affordable way.

The Gulbenkian Training Programme in Bioinformatics runs regularly at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, in Oeiras, Portugal, since 1999. So far, more than 2400 course attendees have acquired practical skills that they can use with independence. Short, intensive hands on courses available on application.
The Programme is described in Brief Bioinform (2010) 11(6): 626-634, first published online October 21, 2010 doi:10.1093/bib/bbq063.

GTPB: BPB14 Bioinformatics using Python for Biologists

GTPB: BPB14 Bioinformatics using Python for Biologists | Bioinformatics Training | Scoop.it

Python is an object-oriented programming language that is ideal for biological data analysis. The course will start from zero knowledge, and introduce you to all basic concepts of Python such as calculating, organizing data, reading and writing files, program logic and writing bigger programs. All examples and practical sessions will focus on solving biological problems.

In particular the sessions will cover:
- working with DNA and protein sequences
- data retrieval from files and their manipulation
- running applications, such as BLAST, locally and from a scrip
- finding motifs in sequence
- parsing common file formats (Uniprot, GenBank, PDB, BLAST) with Biopython
- ways to find and correct program errors

The course will be highly interactive and the students will continuously put theory into practice while learning. By the end of the course, the participants will have a good understanding of Python basics and will have acquired the skills to manage any type of bioinformatics database record and to run applications from scripts. Basic Unix/Linux skills will be provided at the beginning of the course.

Pedro Fernandes's insight:

An excellent way for a biologist to start programming from scratch!

My father is a former police officer who took up photography when he retired. A few months ago, I asked him when he was going to try a new hobby. "Aren't you an expert already?" I joked, pointing to
Pedro Fernandes's insight:

A fair account of what is happening in recognition in the training area. The need for sound criteria for badge attribution is critical for the success of this highly flexible method. Criteria that should meet the requirements that acclaimed experts in professional communities agree upon.
