“The capacity to learn is a gift; The ability to learn is a skill; The willingness to learn is a choice.”
— Brian Herbert
I think the first blog post is the hardest, so I’ll start with the basic goals for BioCodeBox. To keep it simple, this is intended to be a box of tutorials for learning to code. Conceptually, the lessons will be applicable to many different kinds of data, however processing biological data puts a fun flavor on things. You will learn that coding concepts are often transferable between languages, fields, and sub-fields once you understand them. Realizing and developing the ability to apply concepts over syntax will make you a more dynamic and marketable programmer. You can analyze traffic statistics with some of the same tools you would use to analyze disease statistics. I will also include some genetics, molecular and cellular biology tutorials as needed, or just when I get tired of boring data!
A little about me– Bioinformatics is what gets me excited about coding and manipulating data; I have a never ending passion for learning, researching, analyzing and planning, which I have finally decided to put to good use!
So becomes BioCodeBox.
Thanks for reading!
