Programming for Biomedical Data Analysis

Computer programming is increasingly essential to the study of all aspects of biology. It is now required for accessing and managing data or performing statistical analyses. This module intends to provide advanced programming skills for students to solve biomedical problems. The module teaching format will take an active learning, student-centered approach. Classes will consist of introductions to programming techniques and associated biological problems, followed by hands-on exercises.

In summary, this module prepares students for data-intensive research in the biomedical area by teaching data analysis methodology, decision making and computer programming to enable students to become less constrained by limitations of pre-existing computational skills.
