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)

The algorithms mentioned in this course are explained very well. But still a little bit of programming language is needed. Look forward to the advanced courses.

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>
