3 Semester Credits/meets part of the research informatics competencies
This course is one of the core competency courses for biomedical informatics at SBMI. It is tailored for those students who would like to solidify or further develop their computer science and programming skills necessary for their biomedical informatics graduate program studies. We will use Python as a vehicle to study essential concepts and skills in data structures and algorithms, and their applications in biomedical informatics. Access to a computer is required and students should expect a reasonable amount of programming assignments. By the end of the semester students should have obtained a solid foundation and necessary computer science skills to tackle challenging problems in biomedical informatics.
