Python for biologists Preface This rather long post is my attempt to explain to novice programmers how hash tables work. A hash table is a data structure for storing key-value pairs and is part of the standard library of many languages. Depending on your language of choice, you might know hash tables as hashes, HashMaps, dictionaries, dicts, associative arrays, or symbol tables. If you’re already familiar with hash tables, you’ll probably spot many points in this post where I have either simplified things, or avoided talking about them entirely. If you think that any of these simplifications hinder rather than help understanding, then please leave a comment or drop me an email – I have not doubt that this post could probably be improved!
with Python and BioPython Hit space for overview. Navigate with arrow keys. What's an API? Lots of Accessible Data Bio Database Access and Sequence Alignment
Introduction Biopython is a set of freely available tools for biological computation written in Python by an international team of developers. It is a distributed collaborative effort to develop Python libraries and applications which address the needs of current and future work in bioinformatics. Biopython
