Why Python?

The original Exploring Bioinformatics uses Perl as its primary programming language. Why are we making the switch to Python? For a number of reasons.
  • Evidence suggests that Python is easier to learn than Perl.
  • Python is typically used in an interactive style, which seems more natural for many of the explorations.
  • Python is seeing increasing use in Bioinformatics.
