We will learn computational methods -- algorithms and data structures -- for analyzing DNA sequencing data. We will learn a little about DNA, genomics, and how DNA sequencing is used. We will use Python to implement key algorithms and data structures and to analyze real genomes and DNA sequencing datasets.

TOP REVIEWS FROM ALGORITHMS FOR DNA SEQUENCING
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.
very engaging and well-presented course material. intermediate difficulty while conveying the basics of how even recent real-world genome alignment and assembly tools work. great course design!
One of the most useful courses I have joined. Many thanks to the instructors for these quality lectures and for the time spent to deliver the information as easily as possible!
About the Genomic Data Science Specialization
With genomics sparks a revolution in medical discoveries, it becomes imperative to be able to better understand the genome, and be able to leverage the data and information from genomic datasets. Genomic Data Science is the field that applies statistics and data science to the genome.
