How to learn Julia for Bioinformatics?

Hello ;
I have did my masters in Bioinformatics but so moved to the experimental Neuroscience 12 years ago.
I would like to return back to Bioinformatics and thought that it would be great to start learning modern Bioinformatics with Julia instead of going through 2 language solution.
Do anyone know how it would be possible to go through basic to advance bioinformatics project with the help of Julia ?
What packages to install to start with it?
Are there any tutorial for Bioinformatics with Julia similar to what are available for Python or R?
I appreciate all the help i can from the Julia community, if there is any community specifically for bioinformatics with Julia please guide me with it.

Probably you can get an overview here: Julia for biologists | Nature Methods

Thanks for suggestion, I went through the paper.
Actually, it has motivated me to learn julia for Bioinformatics.

An expert will be along soon to point you to BioJulia

In the meantime Practical Julia has a chapter devoted to biology

Thanks :slightly_smiling_face:

Tag @kevbonham .

My course is designed to teach computer science in the context of biology. Given your masters, it might be a bit basic for you, but it will teach you Julia syntax with a hopefully familiar set of problems.

Then, my suggestion would be to start tinkering, and ask here or slack or zulip if you need some direction or you get stuck :grinning:

Thanks for your recommendations :+1:
