Dear all,

We are pleased to announce the following SIB course on:

*First Steps with Python in Life Sciences, 1-3 December 2020**.*** 


Have you ever been stuck with a file format that doesn't precisely 
conform to your needs, found yourself doing annoyingly repetitive data 
manipulations, or struggled to efficiently manage and explore your data? 
Python to the rescue! Python is an open-source and general-purpose 
scripting language which runs on all major operating systems.

This 3-days course is addressed to *beginners* who want to become 
familiar with writing Python code to accomplish common tasks such as 
automated data parsing, basic statistical operations and graphical 
representations. For people who are proficient in programming: this 
course might be on the slow side for you and an intermediate python 
class is recommended (check regularly our upcoming training course 

This course will take place in *Lausanne* with rules complying to 
COVID-19 situation (distance and hygiene). In the event of new 
restrictions from the Swiss Government preventing us from organizing the 
course face to face, it will not be cancelled but switched to a virtual 
event (only for the registered participants) on the same date.

Further detailed information, prerequisites and application form are 
available here <https://www.sib.swiss/training/course/2020-12-python>.
Should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at
