About the Course

In this course, you will follow in the footsteps of the bioinformaticians investigating the COVID-19 outbreak by assembling the SARS-CoV-2 genome. Whether you’re new to the world of computational biology, or you’re a bioinformatics expert seeking to learn about its applications in the COVID-19 pandemic, or somewhere in between, this course is for you! As you go through this journey, we will introduce and explain genomic concepts and give you many opportunities to practice your skills, and we will provide a series of problems with gradually increasing complexity. This first course will only discuss the assembly of the SARS-CoV-2 genome, but future courses in this series will explore follow-up bioinformatics analyses used in the COVID-19 pandemic....

A very organized and systematic way of delivering the course. Special thanks to Dr. Niema Moshiri for guiding me through my doubts. Looking forward in doing the second course of this series as well!

GAVE ME A NEW LEARNING PERSPECTIVE ON BIOINFORMATICS

I completed all assessments on the Stepik website for the Week 1, but still the coursera page didn't allow to proceed saying I have to complete the Chapter 1 assessment. The fact is that the course on stepik website had no assessments in Chapter 1, but Chapter 2.

The stepik website further forced the audience to register and use another website called Galaxy. Seems like a dirty trick of these developers to make the audience use their trashy developments on our expenses $$$

Coursera, kindly grow some balls to do a business of education honestly. Without cheating paid course audiences.
