Prerequisites: A basic programming course, such as Coursera's Introduction to Programming with Python (1st module) or CodeAcademy's Python Course. You will just need to show completion not a certification of any kind.

Description

Computation and mathematics form the core of modern biomedical informatics. This course will help students with basic programming and mathematical skills to develop computational and mathematical literacy relevant to biomedical informatics and other computationally oriented biomedical sciences. Mathematical principles will be taught by showing how they apply to computational problems centered on real biomedical data drawn from clinical and biological domains. Emphasis will be on programming and mathematical skills related to biomedical data science. Algorithmic details with be deferred to subsequent courses (e.g. BMI “Computational Methods” and “Data Science Foundations”)
