Python Programming

Installing Python
Python is available for several platforms, and it's simple to download and install http://www.python.org/download/

This course assumes that you run Python 2. Python 3 is the newest branch. Not all current applications and libraries run on Python 3 due to some major differences. When testing and running your assignments on the biocourse server, you will be using Python 2.7.1.

Mac OS X comes with Python installed, although an older version than the latest stable one.

Python Packages
The Python distribution comes with a set of library files. Additional Packages can be downloaded from PyPI, the Python Package Index repository http://pypi.python.org/pypi
