    Series: General Programming
    Python is a general purpose programming language with a rich syntax and structure. You can learn to use Python and see almost immediate gains in productivity relative to programming with other languages. Python has many modules specializing in various topics of interest to the scientific community and is used as an interface for numerous scientific packages. The morning section will provide an introduction to Python. Simple and advanced data types, variable assignment, control structures, mathematical and logical operators, program input and output, and functional programming will be discussed. The afternoon section will cover advanced features of Python relevant to high performance computing. Topics will include efficient data processing with NumPy and Scipy, data visualization, and techniques for using python to drive parallel supercomputing tasks.

    Instructors: Partek Training Staff and RISS Partek Genomics Suite (PGS) allows users to analyze all manner of microarray data, from gene expression to ChIP-chip and DNA methylation. PGS includes powerful statistics and interactive visualizations to explore your data and built in workflows geared towards common analyses. This morning session will be an overview of PGS as well as a demonstration of the gene expression workflow. This session will also be webcast via UMconnect. MSI will no longer support Genedata or the OmicOffice suit of tools in within Spotfire. If you currently use Genedata or Spotfire to analyze your microarray data you will want to attend this session to learn how to use PGS to analyze your microarray data.
