The Practical Course on Scientific Programming and Data Visualization was developed at Harvard where it was offered for the last two years. In 2010, for the first time, it will move to Heidelberg, allowing 45 European students to participate. The course is designed primarily for structural biologists, but scientists from other disciplines are welcome to apply. The goals of the course are to to allow students to learn and master computational skills that are frequently required in less routine projects and to learn methods of data visualization. Joint lecture sessions and three parallel tutorial tracks will be offered: Scientific Programming with Python, OSX Programming and Molecular Visualization with Maya. As part of the course, we ask students to prepare a project proposal that is relevant for their own research area.
