This course is very very good. Challenging at times. It does not hold your hand at all times and sometimes requires research to solve some of the problems, but I like the community and the approach.
Excellent introduction to bioinformatics. They put a lot of heart and thought into the design of the course. I will continue to use the concepts I've learned in and out of bioinformatics.

As a graduate student with background in molecular biology, I find the computational challenging enough, and there is some new insights in biology as well. However, some of the lectures of week 3 and week 4 are very confusing.

Very nice course and information, but backend could be more polished. Many tasks (expecially about randomized algorithms) could fail even if you do 100% right. And very little debug information provided.

Fascinating subject where informatics and biology come together . By taking these courses you get a deep understanding of how research results are obtained by multidisciplinary teams.

It was very tough and worth attempting it because I have given many numbers of attempts in all the quizzes but at every attempt, I could rectify my mistakes.

A good course and introduction. Some of the computer graded homework assignments need better explanations for the desired result set, to avoid frustration.

Основной курс находится на Stepik, здесь же непродолжительные лекции которые полностью повторяются и раскрываются на Stepik что немного странно.

After completing the entire course, I feel like the majority of it was explained well. The assignments are fair and the content is interesting.
The content itself is interesting and challenging enough. However, the wordings need improvements. Some parts were difficult to understand.

Very interesting lectures and practical assignments. But in my opinion the capstone project is not too interesting for "computer" people.
The course was great. I would recommend it to anyone interested. There are a few things to fix, especially on the external toolkit.

Some of the Stepik material needs to be updated and put in more clear and simpler language. Otherwise, great learning curve!

The programming assignments could have been described more appropriately otherwise the course material was quite great.

I couldn't finish successfully last question but I don't know why. I believe I understand the meaning of the question

The answers are stale. MEME tool results don't match what they expect. It takes a while to find students to review.
By Kenny S•
the course is great, extermely informative and educational, just takes a lot of time to grok all the information
Есть недоработки, но вместе с комментариями других учащихся, можно разобраться в сути заданий

Some parts are written in a way that is very hard to understand, but overall good course

The two platform format is quite complex. But the material is excellent!
By Jack C•
The course was very informative, but at points it was very confusing.
By Aditya B•
Very well explained for both biologists and computer scientists.
Best lecture to dive into Bioinformatics first time!

Not made for a biologist but for a programming man.

Good Course but at times difficult to understand.
