This course is very very good. Challenging at times. It does not hold your hand at all times and sometimes requires research to solve some of the problems, but I like the community and the approach.

Excellent introduction to bioinformatics. They put a lot of heart and thought into the design of the course. I will continue to use the concepts I've learned in and out of bioinformatics.

The material of the course is simply exquisitely presented. The concepts are clear, easy to grasp. You won't be a bioinformatician after doing this course, but you'll make the first step.

Excellent course. The Stepik grading could use a couple of tweaks and perhaps a bit more debugging, but it was an excellent blend of bioinformatics, molecular biology, and programming.

Overall, the course is great. However, in the week 4, the quality of pseudocode is not as good, it is much harder to follow. Would love to have had a more extensive explanation.

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.

Nice and recommended.
(The final exam was a bit tedious though, with many points repeatedly given simply for "uploading the logo" and not much creative leeway)

Extremely helpful. This course is not limited to teaching us to use Bioinformatic Tools, it also helps us understand deeply the ways in which the tools work.

If you have problems, go ahead and take Biology Meets Programming: Bioinformatics (University of California San Diego)... Highly suggest that

I feel this was a good introduction to bioinformatics. It can be a little confusing sometimes, but there was nothing I could not figure out in the end

Please be clear while explaining the course. it not clear what are they trying to explain and it takes a lot time for us to figure it out.

A GOOD START TO LEARN BIOINFORMATICS, AND ITS ALGORITHMS.
YOU SHOULD HAVE SOME PROGRAMMING EXPERIENCE FOR A BETTER UNDERSTANDING.

Loved how hands-on and interactive this course is! I learnt python side-by-side with this course, and it was definitely worth it!

Really nice and clear course. The hands-on learning is fundamental to create a smooth transition between algorithms and biology.

Well prepared course although sometimes tough due to algorithmization tasks even for people with programming background.

The course was challenging and the workload was heavy (for the honors track). Yet very rewarding in the end - thank you!
