I give this course 5 star because I did Bioinformatics I and I totally enjoy it.\n\nThis is where programming can be fun, and practical, and you'll learn some basic biology too.\n\nWhat's not to love?
I learned a lot from this difficult and time-consuming course! It covers biological concepts using Python. It made learning Python more interesting for me, since I have always loved biology.
The external tool was too complex for a beginner in programming, which defeats the purpose of the exercise. This made me lose interest very quickly.

Can be more interactive with videos for beginners for more comprehensive understanding. Otherwise, wonderful, highly informative content!

Programming part not well explained and too difficult- it can clearly be seen from the comments that many people have the same issues
von MD A J N•
no 6 quiz of week 4 is bad in answering every time ans submit the right ans i got the wrong in after assessment. it may be improved

Gets quickly very confusing and difficult. Also, do the Codeacademy Python class before even starting this course.

Programming Level is NOT FOR BEGINNERS. The Codecademy was useless when compared to the coding assignments given.
von Ojochenemi E•
the coding aspect were neither clear nor easy enough for a biologist who is new to programming to grasp
von Shana M•
Steptik images in week 4 aren't showing up which means its impossible to understand what's going on
von dheeraj K•
in my opinion, this course is hard for beginners. i do not have computer background in programming
von Celine A•
Too complicated for a beginner's course, the quizzes don't match the stepik chapters.
von Inukonda J H•
It is hard for beginners. Especially for some who has no computer lesson background.
von Víctor R D•
It has been the most stressful and frustrating course, certainly not for beginners.
von Spencer P•
Its called Bioinformatics for "Beginners", when it is still extremely difficult.
von Vidya B•
This course is not for begginers. please change tag line.but good to learn
von Jad A•
Takes A LOT more time than they say and the explanations aren't clear
von Vaishnavi R•
This course is definitely not for beginners.
von Lina S P R•
Is NOT FOR BEGINNERS, WAS SO HARD.

This course was supposed to be for beginners, but I found that this is not the case at all. I had to spend about 10 hours a week for about four months outside of the course using other resources to actually be able to complete it. The fact that each question in the interactive learner does not show the full code is extremely limiting and frustrating for people completely new to learning to code. I would not recommend this course to others as a result.

As a biologist, I find this course way more avanced than for beginners.
The Codecademy links provided are useful and do teach the basics of programming, however the Stepik tasks associated are far beyond what's explained on Codecademy, giving me the impression that to be able to pass this course you need to have a basics on programming more than on biology.
Mad respect to the biologists that are able to finish this course without going crazy.

This course is definitely not for beginners. It takes too much more time than it mentions and fails to guide beginners in the bioinformatics field properly. Would not recommend it at all.
von Nicolás F T O•
This course is terrible, it's poorly explained and it's by no means for beginners, a lie, I can't find a way to quit this course but if I knew I would do it immediately.
von Kushagra J•
The course is surely not for beginners and it takes a lot more time than 4 hours a week.
von Hesham A•
Not for beginners and the output window is badly programmed.

I am a beginner and this is very difficult to understand.
