It was well taught. I liked the fact the two professors focused on two different subjects- biology and statistics portion of this course. The paragraphs written below each video was extremely helpful.

Relatively nice introduction course, contents are maybe rather limited, yet as an instructive course, it does provide a clear overview which correlates well with the required answers for the quizzes!

This course lays out the foundation for the rest of the Specialization. The course feels a little light on content but the concepts it does cover are well described.

A good, general & quick overview to new technologies in Genomic Data Science.
Recommended to be completed not discretely, but with the entire Specialization Program.

Interesting topic, maybe an improvement could be to provide the material as one file and not many files one for each video (also easier to consult in the future).

Wish it was a bit more challenging for those of us in scientific research, but I understand the need to be broadly applicable. Enjoyed it and learned a lot.

A good basic overview of the subject. Can be skipped if you have some biology background as many of these topics are covered during a standard sequence.

Good and helpful introduction on genomics. The use of real life examples was especially important on how we use, protect and analyze our data.

It was a great introduction about what is genomic data science. I am looking forward to take the other specialization courses from now on.

The course introduces lots of familiar topics, but challenges in the questioning part which also could be thought in the video lecture.

Muy bueno para empezar con los conceptos básicos necesarios antes de adentrarse de lleno en bioinformática y ciencia de datos genómicos

This course is an amazing. What students have to do to excel in this course is, they have to study from authentic additional material.

I learned all the basic concepts of genomics.
I still don't know any specific concepts, but I hope to acquire them in further courses.

it would be better if graphical representation are included for easy understanding, to the students who are going into gemonics .

Though the content is introductory and general concepts, it could have been done in a slower pace and a little bit more detail.

Very basic introduction to genomics including both biology knowledge as well as computer science application in genomics.

It was fun, however, the part with the project was toughest and I think I need to be more prepared to handle such tasks

The last assignment, reading a scientific paper was quite lame. And, the course needs to be updated - it six year old.

it was interesting course but the part of statistics was severely complicated and should be taught in simple language.

Time of each video is limited, so lots of content are just mentioned without going deeper. Just a introductory course.

Nice introduction that sums up most important topics. Could be a little more specific and/or detailed at some points.

The course instructors are very knowledgeable. One just has to take his time to grasp all the concepts, no rush.
