Sobre o curso

Are you interested in learning how to program (in Python) within a scientific setting? This course will cover algorithms for solving various biological problems along with a handful of programming challenges helping you implement these algorithms in Python. It offers a gently-paced introduction to our Bioinformatics Specialization (, preparing learners to take the first course in the Specialization, "Finding Hidden Messages in DNA" ( Each of the four weeks in the course will consist of two required components. First, an interactive textbook provides Python programming challenges that arise from real biological problems. If you haven't programmed in Python before, not to worry! We provide "Just-in-Time" exercises from the Codecademy Python track ( And each page in our interactive textbook has its own discussion forum, where you can interact with other learners. Second, each week will culminate in a summary quiz. Lecture videos are also provided that accompany the material, but these videos are optional....

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?

A very good course for those who has some (at least a little) experience in programmimg! I really loved it, it was challenging sometimes, especially in the end, but I did it and learned a lot.

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

I already have python background so it is good for me. Maybe not suitable for beginner who doesn't touch python before.

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

The course is very nice but very difficult at the same time. It is not a course for true beginners!!

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!

A very interesting course, but perhaps not necessarily for "begginer" programmers.

Great intro course even if tedious for those who know next to nothing about coding

Good course although could be improved with more simplicity and less complexity.

It's good, but I would prefer that the python was taught within the course.

too hard for beginners, it started simple and escalated to hard very fast

It's really difficult for someone without any programming knowledge.

Not recommended for real beginners who have no programming knowledge

It is a little bit basic, but a great introduction to bioinformatics
