(Sorry for the late post.) Well, in session 1 we got our computers and our editors squared away, and Patrick navigated us through the Rosalind site, took us through some introductory problems, together with some introductory demonstrations of Python, the shell commands, etc. There was a discussion of future projects. Nothing critical has happened that should keep you away from Session 2. Some attempt was made at filming Session 1, but it was glitchy, but we (I) will try to post what happened (somehow) soon.
This week we will likely go through some more difficult Rosalind problems, and perhaps start work on a project. There have been a few suggestions and inspirations over the last week (Howard Young's talk got some people thinking) If you want to participate in the contact sport of Bioinformatics with a really terrific guide please stop by. Anyone who wants to participate in problem solving is welcome. Click here to find out about:
1. Prerequisites (there really aren't too many except you need to set up your computer, and have a strong interest in problem-solving)
2. Why the silly Kirk photo is the logo for these sessions.
