Week 1: Welcome!

<p>Welcome to class!</p><p>This course will focus on two questions at the forefront of modern computational biology, along with the algorithmic approaches we will use to solve them in parentheses:</p><ol><li>Weeks 1-2: Where in the Genome Does DNA Replication Begin? (<em>Algorithmic Warmup</em>)</li><li>Weeks 3-4: Which DNA Patterns Play the Role of Molecular Clocks? (<em>Randomized Algorithms</em>)</li></ol><p>Week 5 will consist of a Bioinformatics Application Challenge in which you will get to apply software for finding DNA motifs to a real biological dataset.</p><p>Each of the two chapters in the course is accompanied by a Bioinformatics Cartoon created by Randall Christopher and serving as a chapter header in the Specialization's bestselling <a href="http://bioinformaticsalgorithms.com" target="_blank">print companion</a>. You can find the first chapter's cartoon at the bottom of this message. What does a cryptic message leading to buried treasure have to do with biology? We hope you will join us to find out!</p><p><img src="http://bioinformaticsalgorithms.com/images/cover/replication_cropped.jpg" title="Image: http://bioinformaticsalgorithms.com/images/cover/chapter1_cropped.jpg" width="500"></p><p><a href="http://compeau.cbd.cmu.edu" target="_blank"><img src="http://bioinformaticsalgorithms.com/images/Compeau_caricature.jpg" width ="150"></a> <a href="http://cseweb.ucsd.edu/~ppevzner/" target="_blank"><img src="http://bioinformaticsalgorithms.com/images/Pevzner_caricature.jpg" width ="150"></a></p><p>Phillip and Pavel</p>...

Week 2: Finding Replication Origins

<p>Welcome to Week 2 of class!</p> <p>This week, we will examine the biological details of how DNA replication is carried out in the cell. We will then see how to use these details to help us design an intelligent algorithmic approach looking for the replication origin in a bacterial genome.</p>...

Week 4: How Rolling Dice Helps Us Find Regulatory Motifs

<p>Welcome to Week 4 of class!</p> <p>Last week, we encountered a few introductory motif-finding algorithms. This week, we will see how to improve upon these motif-finding approaches by designing randomized algorithms that can "roll dice" to find motifs.</p>...

Very tough but rewarding class. The programming part was easy, the algorithms kicked my butt. Love the challenge and can't wait to take the rest!!! Such an interesting field!

por MPDec 4th 2017

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

Sobre o Programa de cursos integrados Bioinformatics

Join Us in a Top 50 MOOC of All Time! How do we sequence and compare genomes? How do we identify the genetic basis for disease? How do we construct an evolutionary Tree of Life for all species on Earth? When you complete this Specialization, you will learn how to answer many questions in modern biology that have become inseparable from the computational approaches used to solve them. You will also obtain a toolkit of existing software resources built on these computational approaches and that are used by thousands of biologists every day in one of the fastest growing fields in science. Although this Specialization centers on computational topics, you do not need to know how to program in order to complete it. If you are interested in programming, we feature an "Honors Track" (called "hacker track" in previous runs of the course). The Honors Track allows you to implement the bioinformatics algorithms that you will encounter along the way in dozens of automatically graded coding challenges. By completing the Honors Track, you will be a bioinformatics software professional! Learn more about the Bioinformatics Specialization (including why we are wearing these crazy outfits) by watching our introductory video. You can purchase the Specialization's print companion, Bioinformatics Algorithms: An Active Learning Approach, from the textbook website. Our first course, "Finding Hidden Messages in DNA", was named a top-50 MOOC of all time by Class Central!...

Perguntas Frequentes – FAQ

  • Ao se inscrever para um Certificado, você terá acesso a todos os vídeos, testes e tarefas de programação (se aplicável). Tarefas avaliadas pelos colegas apenas podem ser enviadas e avaliadas após o início da sessão. Caso escolha explorar o curso sem adquiri-lo, talvez você não consiga acessar certas tarefas.

  • Quando você se inscreve no curso, tem acesso a todos os cursos na Especialização e pode obter um certificado quando concluir o trabalho. Seu Certificado eletrônico será adicionado à sua página de Participações e você poderá imprimi-lo ou adicioná-lo ao seu perfil no LinkedIn. Se quiser apenas ler e assistir o conteúdo do curso, você poderá frequentá-lo como ouvinte sem custo.
