Subject: Are you a life sciences major interested in learning how to code and learn 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 one-credit, student-taught 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. The course will also explore how programming is used in the broader context of the life sciences, research, and healthcare, while also touching 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. While the course is currently has very few/no open seats, the course facilitator will be keeping all interested students (registrants and waitlisted) up-to-date about the course in case any more seats open up. Sign up at ter.ps/pythonSTIC to receive more info/updates about this STIC course, including the syllabus and an invite to a Zoom info session invite with the course facilitator to ask questions.
