This was really fun. Really enjoyed the a-ha of the algorithms and the fun of solving the alignment and assembly problems. Feel mildly powerful after assembling a virus genome.

Excellent intro to the computational challenges in analyzing genomic sequences.\n\nLectures and programming exercises explain algorithms very clearly even for beginners.
