Programme requirements

There are not prerequisites for this course. The students are however expected to be familiar with computers. They should have a good understanding of the functioning of a computer (hardware components, operating system/file system). A basic knowledge of UNIX/LINUX would be good, although it is not essential. It will be necessary to install the following software on your own laptop: - python3 with the modules numpy and biopython - a text editor with syntax highlighting (simple one or IDE) - for windows user: a terminal environment (e.g. cygwin or MinGW)
