Very tough but rewarding class. The programming part was easy, the algorithms kicked my butt. Love the challenge and can't wait to take the rest!!! Such an interesting field!

Nice and recommended.\n\n(The final exam was a bit tedious though, with many points repeatedly given simply for "uploading the logo" and not much creative leeway)

I really liked the course, I had fun finishing assignments and learning the theory behind each concept. However, I take my time very seriously and this course has underrated the time you should devote as I end up having too much pressure due to other work I should be doing.

The answers are stale. MEME tool results don't match what they expect. It takes a while to find students to review.

Clear and well-formatted. No instructional support in the forums was disappointing, though.

Really nice and clear course. The hands-on learning is fundamental to create a smooth transition between algorithms and biology.

I have received financial aid because I was interested in the bioinformatics field and was reading alot about it and wanted to start my first course, it was my biggest mistake that I have chosen this course. It is awfully explained, terrible accent, basically a course with 50% information for beginners and 50% for coders and the quiz for week 2 just pumped my blood pressure to the roof, this course is in no way to be called for beginners and the interactive text is a mess and it is no way as a biotechnologist that I am going to recommend this course to anyone !, I need to apologize for coursera company for giving me aid for this COURSE !
note : this course is basically like a money grab, it is not enough that you are on their course they actually from Minute one advertise for their book vol 1 and 2... such a joke.
All in all I am stopping this course because the knowledge I am gaining from this course is 1 on the scale of 10, and the amount of confusion and frustration and disappointment I am getting is 10 on the scale of 10 !!
I really hope coursera can forgive my dropping out of this course and allows me to get a financial aid at an actual course
