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.

Really liked the course and love the topic, however the algorithms section was very difficult and could use some more in depth explaining. Without that, I would not quantify it as "beginner".

It's quite hard to complete this course without any knowledge of Python. I don't recommend it as introduction to programming. BUT as a course about bioinformatics it's great!

In general a very good course. The problem is actually more that one is doing the programming too "mechanistically" by copy-pasting rather than having to think for one-self.

Although a very good course, material and interesting topic, it can be quite challenging for a beginner. Nevertheless very happy and satisfied to have done and completed it!

You definitely need to complete the codecademy lessons or at least have Python experience before the end of week one for this course. Otherwise, I really enjoyed the course.

well I'm a biologist & this is my first time learning python .. I 've loved this course even though it becomes kinda difficult after week 2 but I've learned a lot from it

A good introduction to computational aspects of bioinformatics. However, the pace of the course might seem too low if you have a strong computer science background.

It is a great course. But stepik platform needs to be edited. There are some chapters with hard problems and typos, but if you work hard, you will learn a lot.

A stimulating and engaging survey of elementary bioinformatics algorithms (searching and pattern matching) with the added bonus of practice with Python.

Difficult for beginners inexperienced in coding but so rewarding and extremely interesting! Awesome introduction into the field of bioinformatics

The course is alright. I learned a great deal from the challenges in the Stepik modules. The only issue is that the material is pretty dry.

Excellent course to learn Python programming and great way to learn very interesting topics in biology and be introduced to bioinformatics.

Novel knowledge and require some python base.More useful for leaners if printable handout with summarized information provided .

Very technical.... I certainly would recommend this to someone with a prior experience in Biology. Regardless, very good course
교육 기관: Caroline C•
I already have python background so it is good for me. Maybe not suitable for beginner who doesn't touch python before.

Very good introductory course to new learners in bioinformatics or students who are just curious about this field.

This course was very effective for me.
It has a lot of details, and I need to review some issues agian

Très bon cours malgré le fait qu'il faille passer par une plateforme externe de Coursera pour les cours

Stepic issues with not syncing progress and assignment completion. All else was good. Well paced.

very interesting!, i liked the stepik interactive lesson very much, i prefer them over lectures

Limited intro course compared to one offered few years ago but still Great start , Thank you

Please add more video course and meaningful assignments instead of all readings. Thanks

It doesnt seem for begginers in coding but still there is a lot of helpful information!

Way more to be "digestible" to beginners in bioinformatics and non-computer students.

First time coding, so found some parts challenging, but worked it all out in the end!
