Does anyone here use programming in biology?
I want to get started with a language but im pretty much a beginner when it comes to programming. So I need something fairly easy. I am fairly confident with computers and this will just be a hobby. for now.
I am looking at python as i used it at a workshop i went to and i know its used a lot in biology.
I initially want to use for it for Systems Biology. Creating models of pathways and systems. And then making predictions about the pathway etc.
print 'adenine: '.$counter*100/length($dnaseq).' %';
#the above code wud print the % of adenine in the given DNA sequence
#to run the programme save the code in a file 'dnaseq.pl'
#and execute it by the command
# perl dnaseq.pl
lol. Thats true. Same with systems biology. Should be a problem really, but im not sure it is at the moment. As long as it works.
Me neither. But if you want to go into pure biology, not medicine, you really need to learn a little programming. It is becoming more and more needed in the biological world. Especially with the advent of bioinformatics.
