Subject: Are you a life sciences major interested in learning how to code in Python? Description: Given the integration of technology and big data with the sciences and its impact on society, as well as the major pivot to remote and simulated research caused by the pandemic, learning basic programming is becoming a critical skill for students in the life sciences. BSCI238F is a Fall 2021 student-taught, one-credit course (STIC) for undergraduate life sciences students with little-to-no programming experience who are looking to start building a strong computational foundation starting with Python, while exploring how programming is used in the broader context of the life sciences, research, and healthcare. The course will also touch on ethical coding, the issues around big data and data privacy, and how they overlap with the responsibilities of a scientist. Students will also leave this course with an understanding of how programming can fit into their career plans.
