I give this course 5 star because I did Bioinformatics I and I totally enjoy it.
This is where programming can be fun, and practical, and you'll learn some basic biology too.
What's not to love?

A very good course for those who has some (at least a little) experience in programmimg! I really loved it, it was challenging sometimes, especially in the end, but I did it and learned a lot.

Had a lot of fun doing this =)
Despite the fact that the images in the stepik.parts havnt been loaded at some times and the quizes kept annoying, when my computed answer should´ve been wrong :/

This course covers very interesting subjects in bioinformatics but you need to be familiar whit basic python programming. I think further explanation and educatory contents are necessary, too.

Really liked the course and love the topic, however the algorithms section was very difficult and could use some more in depth explaining. Without that, I would not quantify it as "beginner".

It's quite hard to complete this course without any knowledge of Python. I don't recommend it as introduction to programming. BUT as a course about bioinformatics it's great!

In general a very good course. The problem is actually more that one is doing the programming too "mechanistically" by copy-pasting rather than having to think for one-self.

Although a very good course, material and interesting topic, it can be quite challenging for a beginner. Nevertheless very happy and satisfied to have done and completed it!

You definitely need to complete the codecademy lessons or at least have Python experience before the end of week one for this course. Otherwise, I really enjoyed the course.

very well explained, but needs prior knowledge on coding and bioinfomatics to understand easily. if you know some basics then its not too difficult to complete the course.

well I'm a biologist & this is my first time learning python .. I 've loved this course even though it becomes kinda difficult after week 2 but I've learned a lot from it

A good introduction to computational aspects of bioinformatics. However, the pace of the course might seem too low if you have a strong computer science background.

It is a great course. But stepik platform needs to be edited. There are some chapters with hard problems and typos, but if you work hard, you will learn a lot.

A stimulating and engaging survey of elementary bioinformatics algorithms (searching and pattern matching) with the added bonus of practice with Python.

Great course, easy to follow. However, if you are new to coding, this can be a headache. Otherwise, awesome material and the videos were very helpful!

The course is alright. I learned a great deal from the challenges in the Stepik modules. The only issue is that the material is pretty dry.

Excellent course to learn Python programming and great way to learn very interesting topics in biology and be introduced to bioinformatics.

Novel knowledge and require some python base.More useful for leaners if printable handout with summarized information provided .

Very technical.... I certainly would recommend this to someone with a prior experience in Biology. Regardless, very good course

I already have python background so it is good for me. Maybe not suitable for beginner who doesn't touch python before.

Très bon cours malgré le fait qu'il faille passer par une plateforme externe de Coursera pour les cours

The course is very nice but very difficult at the same time. It is not a course for true beginners!!

Stepic issues with not syncing progress and assignment completion. All else was good. Well paced.
