Computing in Molecular Biology 1

26 September 2017

This course is an introduction to Data Science for students of Molecular Biology. We use the R language to learn the basic tools to handle structured data and extract valuable scientific information from it.

Slides used in classes

These slides contain the subjects that were evaluated on the Midterm Exam. New slides will be available at the last minute. Please take good notes on classes to improve your learning. We recommend taking notes with pen and paper using the Cornell Method.


By regulation from the Rectory, students need to attend at least 70% of the classes. The attendance book is updated every week and can be seen in Google Sheets. Please check it and verify if it is right.
