This course provided me a very quick overview of all the core concepts pertaining to DNA sequencing. It is very well organized, crystal clear demonstration of concepts and I really enjoyed the course.
Very good course this is. Just a little advice, please make the quiz questions more clear and more specific because one shouldn't waste time to understand a question which is very easy to implement.

I had a lot of fun doing the little programming assignments in this course. I did not know I like algorithms this much. The pace is good and it is well taught.

Very well explained, a lot of the gaps of the previous courses got cleared up. This course should be an example on how to teach a subject. Thanks!!!

This is by far the hardest and most organized. My coding skills have improved greatly. The codes are explained very well. I definitely recommend it!

I loved this course a lot. It's well organized. The lectures are clear. And the practicals are highly useful. Also, the assignments are helpful.
Very well prepared, from basics up to all commonly used techniques in bioinformatics. Prerequisites in Python is a plus, but not even necessary.

Helpful material for DNA Sequencing and number crunching.
Well taught, I suggest a background in Python to make things more enjoyable.

Very clear presentation. Good analogies used to help with understanding abstract concepts. Both instructors are excellent teachers.
By Raul A•
Very good course I enjoyed it a lot. It has a very good layout at just the proper difficulty level for a course of this duration.

Great course! Best in the Bioinformatics John Hopkins Specialization so far in my opinion! Had so much fun with the algorithms!
By Mohamed A•
Great course! The materials explain everything from scratch. The Practical lessons are very helpful! Thank you for this course.

I enjoyed the introduction to some of the algorithms used in genomics... and hope to explore these further in my career.
By Erik A•
Really enjoyed taking this course. Very impressed by the quality of the lectures and practicals. highly recommended
By Ammar A•
Excellent course that gives enough to understand a lot of interesting DNA related algorithms. Great instructor.
By Ahmed A•
The quality of this course is very high, and I recommend it to anyone who is starting to learn bioinformatics
it's really a helpful course, and it would show you the basic algorithms of the software we are using today.
By Lara S•
Very well taught and gives a good theoretical background, while still focusing on the practical side enough!
By Emile v M•
Very good course on DNA Sequencing. Excellent teaching and just the right level of programming assignments.
By Jon V L•
really well taught with clear lectures and good demonstrations of the implementations of algorithms.

Wonderful course! However, I think most of the homework can be improved to become more challenging.
