Python For The Life Sciences: Update

After about a year of work and barring a few last-minute tweaks to the layout, it looks like we finally have our book Python For The Life Sciences, ready to publish. UPDATE 10/6/2016: THE BOOK IS NOW PUBLISHED AND AVAILABLE AT LEANPUB

I think it’s fair to say that we probably got a little carried away with the project, and the book has ended up somewhat larger than we thought it would be, coming in at over 300 pages. For sure it’s not quite the concise, slim volume, quick introduction to biocomputing with Python that I think we had envisaged in the beginning.

The book does however cover an incredible range of life science research topics from biochemistry and gene sequencing, to molecular mechanics and agent-based models of complex systems. We hope that there’s something in it for anybody who’s a life scientist with little or no computer programming experience, but who would love to learn to code.
