This course is very well organized, easy to understand, and explained everything steps by step which will help to grasp the concept easily. If you are a beginner like me, you should take this course.
Great course. All lectures provide a biological context for the tools you learn in the labs. The labs themselves provide a great introduction to the many tools available for bioinformatic analysis.

The very last assignment wouldn't work for me, for the final question. Total bummer. I was doing everything according to instructions and even checking but it wouldn't work. Don't feel like explaining but the conversion to mega just was faulty, and the instructor's instructions to fix the problem didn't help either.
Also, one of the questions in the final assignment was nowhere in the reading.
But overall a nice intro and not too difficult.

A short and sweet, to-the-point course. This course helped me in getting a hang of some of the most widely used softwares and techniques required for bioinformatics. Only issue-some of the questions in certain quizzes have been assigned wrong choices as the answer, which led to a lot of confusion. They just wouldnt accept the right answer, so you are forced to mark the wrong ones and proceed.

It Was A Very Interesting Course For My First Introduction To Bioinformatics. It Changed My Views That Biological Discoveries Only Involves Working In A Laboratory With Chemicals And Biological Samples.
It Felt Really Interesting That Even In Biology We Can Use Computer Software's To Generate Results Which Are Of Immense Importance To Scientists & Researchers.

A nice introduction to bioinformatic methods. I learned some useful skills from this course that I'll be able to implement in my future research. I would recommend that people who take the course do some reading outside of the course material as sometimes the lectures skim over things with an expectation that you know it all.

Sometimes the information It's not that clear, they show basic information and then is hard to underestand everything to set it toghether. Any way, so usefull and interesting and a good way to get close to this tecniques that are becaming son important nowdays.

It was easy to follow, although some answers to the tests were wrong due to updates in the databases were are suposed to use. I wish it was a litlle more challenging (optional), but it porvided me with the basic knowledge to start my own learning.

Great course for learning about current analysis methods and wonderful way to discover the amount of information you can extract from a DNA or protein sequence. Good explaining and summarizing of important bioinformatic content for begginers

I enjoy this course, it will be very helpfull for my academic project and give new ideas of studies. I have some difficulties to follow the steps in the few labs exercises, but it does not comprimise the whole course.

There should be a lab review after each lab.If the 'Selection Pressure' segment was a bit more simple, it would be easier to understand. Discussion on other databases like TAIR,,FlyBase etc should be included.

A thorough course for beginners with very interesting labs! I was pleasantly surprised with how much and how easily I learned bioinformatics skills with this course. Well done!
By DANG T•
This is a great course, It helps me know more knowledge.
But it is very difficult to understand. To need the method to help students easily.
Thanks will run so much ..

There was a lot of stuff I could immediately use for my work. some of the other stuff was good to know to better understand what can be done behind the scene.

Very good starting point or restarting point for working with sequence data as a compuational biologist. Very clear course with good lab sessions.

Creo que es un curso interesante para introducirse y empezar a ver lo que es la bioinformática y la utilidad práctica que puede llegar a tener
By Huseyn G•
The course teaches to work with nice public databases and tools. The teaching can definitely get better adding more examples to the lecture.
By Apurva A M•
It is a good beginners' course, but I think you must provide some reading materials for experimental techniques discussed during lectures.
By Teresa R•
The content was good. I definitely learned enough from the course to have more competent knowledge in bioinformatic analysis.
By Corrin M•
The lab format was sometimes a little hard to follow, but overall I think this was a very informative course and I enjoyed it.
some of the things were difficult to learn and needed more explanation, especially while understanding how a database works.
By Rui W•
Highly simplified introduction of bioinformatic methods which is easy to understand even for beginners.
By Roberto P•
Very nice, I would have liked to go deeper in NGS and RNA seq but is good as starter, I recommend it!
By guangyuan l•
an introductory course, but if you wanna delve into detail, you need to spend way more time on it
By Katherine B•
Was a great course for beginners and those wanting a refresher on bioinformatic concepts.
By Rohit C•
Good course for anyone looking to get an in depth understanding of bioinformatics tools!
