The workshop is designed for beginners, and topics covered will include: data types, control structures, regular expressions, file parsing, data manipulation, modules. Our aim is to provide the fundamental tools to allow participants to make use of perl to facilitate their research. Problem sets will be developed based on the needs of the participants.

This workshop is suitable for those without prior computer programming experience. This workshop may be considered a prerequisite to our more advanced workshop "Perl for Bioinformatics".
