A very good course for its length and the amount of time it requires. It improved my python skills and knowledge of Genomics. I'm more engaged in my pursuits than before taking the course.

Easy to understand and very powerful examples. Not just it made me familiar with python, it also made it easy for me to teach to my students and inspire them to pursue python further.

Not easy but very very good exercises, will definitely help you master Python if you take the time to understand the quiz answers. They won't give you all the info in the videos so you have to do some digging e.g. for 'list comprehension' which will show up on the quizzes

You should give more instruments to take the final exam, I had to study mostly on my own because the material was not sufficient (at least for me, who has just started programming). Anyway, I really enjoyed the course and the topic!

For a person with absolutely not knowledge of programing its a very nice course to take. Its could be more widely explote the Biopython part, but reading the Biopython cookbook and the baisis presented here its just perfect

I like this compacted course but it sometimes looks too fast to digest. It will be better if you can divide the course into 7 weeks and describe the content slowly. Anyway, I have learned a lot from this course. Many thanks

The course was great, and the material was easy to follow and understand. However, I think we need to have a TA in order to answer our question correctly so that we have correct response and correction

The lectures were very good. However, the final exam was poor with unclear instructions on how to solve the questions. Also, the final exam questions and the lectures were not very related.

Started very easy, but became quite hard at the end. Nicely structured and conveyes everything that is needed. However, sometimes I missed why specific tools have been used and not others.

You better know a lot about Python if you plan to pass this course!! Items covered in lecture are elementary. Items covered in exams/quiz's are Graduate Level!!!

good course for python but you definitely need to have some background in programming to be able to pass. recommend python course by UMichigan here at Coursera.

A few more simple practical assignments would be beneficial. I had no background of coding and needed more basics before I could grasp the concepts fully.

This course was in line with my expectations. Sometimes exercises were a bit out of context. I would have probably dedicated more time to Biopython.

The lectures were really good. I am a microbiologist and have very little background of computer programming. A more detailed course would have he

Good Course. Very informative. Need a bit of more explanation towards execution of commands and parameters as beginners might face certain errors

Clear but some topic are not well explained and to pass the final quiz is necessary further detailed study.
Very useful the help of the Mentor

I learned a great many Python knowledge from this course. It would be better if the quiz and course material can be connected more closely.

I enjoyed this one quite a bit. In particular, the quizzes were enjoyable. Also, the content was decently complete, all things considered.

It helped me connecting between biology and python but i had to learn the basics of python programming from other beginner tutorials.

Pretty good, though it's mostly an overview of Python itself, rather than of applications of Python to genomic data science.

Great course for a non-programmer. Some lessons are a little too advanced for my beginner level, but overall good.

I thought the final exam's difficulty was not commensurate with the course. Overall the course was great though.

Good for what it is, but I was hoping for something more advanced (on the algorithm/programming side).

A fantastic course for the beginners. More of biopython modules training will be appreciated.

4 and a half stars. Some more coverage of biopython and random length variables would be helpful.
