TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO GENOMIC TECHNOLOGIES
Very good introductory course. It's a lot of material to cover for a newbie, but if you have some background, you will find you progress pretty quickly. Enjoyable, engaging, fun and useful.
The tutorial videos were concise while delivering the essential material. The speakers were also engaging and it was a joy to watch them. Overall fairly satisfied with the course.
This course provides a gentle introduction to the concepts and terminology associated with genomics. As someone who never took a biology course in high school or university, this course is perfect.
It's a crisp overview, concise and informative. Week-4 alludes to the power of genomic technologies; and also the pitfalls, if statistics and its adoption is not done right.
