Parsing data records using Python programming

This is a module from the "Python for Biologists" course. One typical problem in bioinformatics is parsing data files. This module explains how to parse FASTA files and GenBank records. It also introduces the if/elif/else construct to make choice in programming and the list  data structure. The text of exercises is provided in a separate file.
