Andrew Dalke is offering a course in Python programming for cheminformatics in Leipzig, Germany on 6-7 October and in the San Francisco Bay Area in early December. Early registration for the Leipzig course ends 12 September.
For full details see http://dalkescientific.com/training/ or contact Andrew directly at firstname.lastname@example.org .
The courses are designed for working computational chemists with some programming experience who want to be more effective at the software aspect of the field. The course is hands-on, with examples directly drawn from common needs in cheminformatics research.
Some of the topics covered are: - an overview of the Python language - plotting with matplotlib - OpenEye's OEChem - parsing CSV, SMILES and SD files - substructure matching with SMARTS - generating and searching fingerprints - scripting PyMol - calling command-line programs like InChI - web scraping servers like PubChem - working with Excel
