 Web skills are an increasingly important part of the "​technology toolbox"​ that any Bioinformatics student and researcher should be constantly building and maintaining up to date ([[http://​www.ploscompbiol.org/​article/​info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pcbi.1000589#​pcbi.1000589-Mount1|ref]]). Web skills are an increasingly important part of the "​technology toolbox"​ that any Bioinformatics student and researcher should be constantly building and maintaining up to date ([[http://​www.ploscompbiol.org/​article/​info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pcbi.1000589#​pcbi.1000589-Mount1|ref]]).

 Although this tutorial is aimed at web development for Bioinformatics,​ anyone who wishes to learn how to setup a web server and develop a web site can take advantage of this course. In particular, the information in the first chapters is not really specific to Bioinformatics and applies to the development of any kind of website and web application,​ not requiring any particular understanding of biological concepts. Although this tutorial is aimed at web development for Bioinformatics,​ anyone who wishes to learn how to setup a web server and develop a web site can take advantage of this course.

 We can broadly define a bioinformatics application as a software that will process some kind of biological data, either obtained directly from a user, or from other sources, and output the result of the elaboration (again either to a user, in human readable format, or maybe to another application):​ We can broadly define a bioinformatics application as a software that will process some kind of biological data, either obtained directly from a user, or from other sources, and output the result of the elaboration (again either to a user, in human readable format, or maybe to another application):​

 Web forms include a SUBMIT button (see Figure 1). On pressing this button, the data collected in the web form are sent to a script (written in Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby or other languages). ​ Web forms include a SUBMIT button (see Figure 1).
