Coding for Medicine in its Fifth Year
Coding for Medicine is an innovative organization dedicated to teach coding skills to young people based on real-life problems. Our primary areas are biology and medicine, but we also offer interesting modules like "Calculus Meets Coding" to teach calculus and coding together, and "Catching Pokemons with Coding" to teach coding to the middle-school students.
Our highly favored high-school summer camps completed its fifth year in 2019. Over the years, we expanded to many topics and areas. The years 2018 and 2019 had been particularly exciting.
- In addition to the coding camps, we introduced a biotechnology lab module ("Tinkering with DNA") in 2018. This lab continued in 2019 with two sessions to explore the microbial world.
- In Fall 2018, we offered the online module Calculus Meets Coding for high-schoolers.
- In Winter 2018, we initiated online classes on R and bioinformatics for college students and post-doctoral researchers.
- In 2019, we built a subscription site for students and researchers in biology and medicine.
- With our students from the 2017 high-school summer camp, we raised money through crowdfunding to uncover the genetic secrets of salmonberry. Research on this project is nearly finished.
2019 Fall Session
|Precalculus through Coding and Animation||Master precalculus concepts by developing a computer-animation.||8 weekends - Oct 26 - Dec 14 |
Precalculus through Coding and Animation
Precalculus in math classes appears to be a hodge-podge of unrelated topics - vectors, trigonometry, matrix, determinant. This module helps you see the connections between those topics by developing a 2D-animation. Those with advanced skills will also build 3D-graphics.
InstructorThese classes will be taught by Dr. Manoj P. Samanta.
Manoj P. Samanta, PhD has been a bioinformatics researcher for over eighteen years and published several high-profile papers including the electric eel genome paper. He worked at the NASA Ames Research Center and Hewlett Packard, Palo Alto, CA. Dr. Samanta received his M.S. and PhD from Purdue University, where he conducted research on nanotechnology. He completed his B. Tech. in Electronics at the Indian Institute of Technology, where he received the Institute Silver Medal for top academic performance. He was also a member of the Indian team in 1989 International Maths Olympiad.
