Hi Thomas

This is a reasonably friendly and generally knowledgeable place for python related questions.
Feel free to ask your questions here.

If you need help starting programming and python is your chosen medium
there is also a tutors list
https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/tutor.

As for the rest...

Have a vague idea what yeast is
None whatever of cytospace
And probably think a 'microarray' other than what you do

[That was a joke. More seriously...]
Specialized areas of application of python are less likely to find help out here

That being the case, starting out with python needs a focussed approach
- Spend a few days getting into python
- Then worry about applying it to your needs

In your case you are not just starting python
but python perl R octave mathlab linux
In this manner you are setting yourself up for failure unless you have enough money to
hire people for all your programming work.

I can tell you that python ecosystem can offer most of what perl, R, octave mathlab offer. But for that you have to go beyond core python to things like
scipy, pandas etc.

Fans of perl, R, octave, mathlab will tell you the same for these as well....

You may want to start by throwing a 5-sided coin.

Best wishes on your studies
