Perl Programming for Biologists

Perl programming

Perl is a powerful programming tool widely used in the analysis of biological data. It not only combines the modern robustness of Java with the expedient pragmatism of scripting languages but also offers both the low-level system access of C and the high-level elegance of Lisp. Perl is widely used in bioinformatics due to its powerful text-processing capacity. It allows the easy implementation of NLP and bio-informatics algorithms and the extraction and generation of textual data. Perl programming

Perl is also easy to learn, is portable and multiplatform, has a large library of extensions, is component-oriented, is good in prototyping, and is efficient in the slicing, dicing, twisting, wringing, smoothing, summarizing and otherwise mangling of text. The objective of this course is to equip biologists who have little or no programming experience with the requisite skills.

This training will teach you how to:

  • Install the Perl interpreter
  • Manipulate files and directories
  • Use arrays and array functions to solve a variety of problems
  • Use the powerful regular expression capabilities of Perl.
  • Generate reports, use hashes to solve biological problems, and write programs that solve common biological problems...       Continue Reading »
