To work efficiently and reliably with the large amount and complexity of data that typically need to be analyzed in (structural) bioinformatics, automation of workflows is a must. In some cases it is possible to find existing software packages to achieve your goal. However, often no suitable package is available for your specific tasks and development of your own piece of software is needed.
Fortunately these days you can find programming platforms with a simple syntax and which require minimal knowledge about computer technology. Python is a programming language that is perfectly suitable for scientific programming: It is simple to learn, but powerful enough even for complicated tasks. If you want to learn programming Python we offer a beginner level course:
