Welcome to the 4273pi bioinformatics education project. We bring Big Data to school-level education, through practical bioinformatics.

We provide free bioinformatics workshops for schools in Scotland and teacher CPD events. These are linked to the SQA curriculum for National 4 Biology, National 5 Biology, Higher Biology and Higher Human Biology and Advanced Higher Biology.

The 4273pi SD card image for Raspberry Pi

We provide a customised Raspberry Pi OS Linux SD card image for teaching, learning and using bioinformatics on the Raspberry Pi.

This includes software and files required for Task C in our workshop Bioinformatics: The Power of Computers in Biology.

The current SD card image is version 1.7, released on 10 July 2023. It runs on any model of Raspberry Pi that was available on the release date.
