    Introduction to Python for bioinformatics

    25th February 2011

    This overview presentation is two years old, but still a highly valuable resource: modules and tools mentioned are alive and useful.
    I think this is the second presentation by Giovanni I’m embedding (first one being about GNU/make for bioinformatics).

    How to easily install any PyPi/easy_install python module on Debian

    16th February 2011

    Imagine you need to install pycassa (which uses easy_install). Here are the 2 (at maximum) very simple steps to have it properly debianized and installed on your Debian/Ubuntu:

    • if you don’t have the python-stdeb package: sudo aptitude install python-stdeb
    • pypi-install pycassa

    That’s it.

    Refer to stdeb readme for more information. You will need that if there are dependencies – which might not be resolved automatically by stdeb.

    Before stdeb, it wasn’t exactly trivial to make a .deb from python module.
