Here's the BioPython Tutorial and Cookbook --> BioPython
It's made by Jeff Chang and colleagues, and it seems to be a very useful reference for bioinformatics.
Actually, I have now found the Documentation website for Python 2.6 --> Python Docs
It probably has almost all basic functions defined in there. Of course, there's always StackOverflow...

For future reference, I'm keeping this Python tutorial URL --> Tutorials Point
Obviously I'm new to this. I'm keeping tabs on useful websites for Python learning.
I am not aware yet of a function that easily calls on the documentation from the Python GUI.
This makes my learning very arduous, a "trial-and-error" kind of thing.
In contrast, R has "?" and "??" functions, which will search the appropriate documentation for that queried function. For example, I can type ?spplot, which will look up the term 'spplot' from the local library, i.e., files in the computer, or ??spplot, which will look up the term from the internet, i.e., from the CRAN website. #obviouslyimafan
If you happen to know how to search for Python functions more easily, do give me a heads up!
Currently, looking for the right function to write is a P.I.A. I'm not complaining though; I thank God that for some reason I'm having fun with this particular challenge.

The following source code for making the heatmaps is working and functional in R v. 3.0.0
in a previous post, i showed you how to make choropleth maps, particularly both world and Philippine maps, using R (see previous post). In this case we used the data we collected from the websites of the World Health Organization and the Philippine Department of Health.

- i hate doing reviews; one can argue that films don't need them.
- reviews exist because of movies, not vice versa.
- don't get me wrong; star trek is pretty solid work from the reliable jj abrams.
- it had a tight script, crazy visuals, character buildup, and some bromance on the side.
- that being said, i agonized for 2 hours inside the cinema.
- i was hoping to find salvation for startrek2 after much anticipation.
- i wanted that one break-out moment that can topple iron man 3.
- there was none.
- to be fair, my pre-expectations were quite high for star trek, and a bit low for iron man.
- there was a very high chance that it will fail my expectations.
- as a trekkie, it pains me to say that ironman3 has edged out startrek2 in the emotions department.
- where did my good ol' jj abrams go?
- ironman3 felt, surprisingly, more human.
- you can do the review on your own.
- think about 3 themes:
- infallibility: which felt more vulnerable?
- sense of threat: what was the main goal of the antagonist? was it killing or was it just escaping?
- consequences: do you really think that the protagonist will die?
- having said that, startrek is best seen on 3D and with fellow trekkies.
- live long and prosper, b*tches.
below is the source code for making the choropleths for the infographic about newborns. you can run the following code in R. By the way, I'm using version 3.0.0; some library packages may have a different syntax and output in older versions of R.
