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)

From the lesson
Week 4: How Rolling Dice Helps Us Find Regulatory Motifs
<p>Welcome to Week 4 of class!</p> <p>Last week, we encountered a few introductory motif-finding algorithms. This week, we will see how to improve upon these motif-finding approaches by designing randomized algorithms that can "roll dice" to find motifs.</p>
