Scientists nowadays collect ever larger amounts of data that have to be stored, interpreted and shared. Furthermore, new guidelines and policies regarding data management are regularly issued by funding agencies, journals or academic institutions. As a result, successful research data management has become both a key skill and a major challenge for many scientists. In this workshop, experts from ETH Scientific IT Services will provide an overview of best practices for data management in quantitative research projects from data acquisition to the final publication of results.

Tutors: Caterina Barillari, Henry Lütcke

Where & when: HIL D 60.1, Stefano-Franscini-Platz 5, 8093 Zürich Tuesday, September 11th 2018, 13 – 17h

We offer a two day course introducing Python to members of DBIOL.

The course introduces the Python programming language to students and researchers having basic programming skills in another programming language already.


This course is suited for you if:

  • you did some programming in the past (maybe R, Matlab, C, Java, ...)
  • you are familiar with concepts like "function", "if then else", "while" and "for".
  • you do not have Python experience yet.

The course will be to fast if you never programmed before.


The course will be given on 25th and 26th of September 2018 in STB E 11 (Stampfenbachstrasse 69). Starting time is 9 am sharp and we will finish around 4 pm.

The first day consists of presentations and exercise sections to introduce the Python programming language.

During the second day attendees can start to work on their own projects or work on exercises provided by the tutor.
