Course Description

Learning from data in order to make useful predictions or obtain insights is a cornerstone of modern science. The goal of this course is to introduce students to the basic tools and workflows for doing this, with a focus on biological- and health-related data. In this course, students will learn how to use Python-based tools, particularly Numpy, SciKit-learn, Pandas, and Matplotlib.


This course applies toward the Bioinformatics Curiosity digital badge.
