If you are thinking of choosing the Bioinformatics profile (even if you're not sure yet) you should already (now) enroll in the course Inleiding programmeren (Python) course ID 401096 via VUnet. Currently, this seems not to be possible because the course is not linked to the master programme. I will try to get this sorted out as soon as possible.

Course Material

Class 1 - intro to linux

Class 2 - python shell: print, operator, types, if exercise: 'calculation' script
