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.

Further reference material needs to be added in my opinion. There can be participants from only Computer Science background and there can be students from only biology background. Hence i think reference materials could aid a participant's understanding a lot.

This was a good course for someone with a fair amount of programming background and a biology degree. But it was difficult to follow at times and I could see how one could easily get lost. Definitely feels more of an intermediate course than a beginner one.

Pros: a lot of programming in automated online environment.
Cons: inconsistencies in code like changing parameter order in often used functions, changing structure of some variables (arrays become dicts). This can be unneccesarily misleading.

Disappointing lack of feedback from any course organiser (most recent response seemed to be about two years old). The biological content tailed off to become much more of course in programming for search algorithms

Some background knowledge on coding is definitely needed for this course, despite the info saying none is needed. The progress expected is way too fast for an actual beginner with no coding experience.

The course is EXCELLENT. But... It's not for beginners!!! If you don't know anything about programming, python and bioinformatics it's nearly impossible to do without help.
It was really frustrating.

This is not for beginners. You need to know more about python to complete it easily and the time limits of Stepik is not correct. It needs far more time than mentioned.

This course is definitely not for beginners. I was on the verge of giving up throughout the course. But once you get ahold of the concepts, it is very interesting.

The course tries hard to balance programming and biology but the programming can become quite a challenge for people with little to no experience in programming.

Although this course was uniquely interesting and insightful, I did feel at times that the lesson material was insufficient to fully understand a concept.

Although this course is possible for beginners, some of the programming problems were frustrating and a hint would have been appreciated.

Not truly for beginners. If you don't have previous knowledge of Python and algorithms expect to invest a lot more than 4 hours a week

this course was very useful for me but it is very very difficult for a beginner, I was suffering from trying to understand it

Very difficult for no coding background people. It would be really helpful if you could describe the error in better ways

This course requires advanced programming skills, the first week has taken 3 weeks from me and I am still stuck.

This course although well taught does not take into account those that know nothing about programming

the instructions in the stepik notes were unclear. i would say the optional lecture video was better
