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 provides a gentle introduction to the concepts and terminology associated with genomics. As someone who never took a biology course in high school or university, this course is perfect.

Nice introductory course for those who are new to the interdisciplinary field of bioinformatics. However, experienced users could also skip this course and go straight to the next ones.

The final project was way more work than any of the other weeks (10 hours!), but it was definitely worth stumbling my way around Galaxy and foreign genomic terms for that long.

Good introductory course, highly interdisciplinary. You will need some basic knowledge in molecular biology and statistics in order to better understand video lectures

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.

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.

Introductory course for the subsequent genomic data science courses. The lecturers are smart and their teaching approach is very encouraging.

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.

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

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.

it is very good but needs some more explanation and supportive materials other than videos to get more knowledge

Good information. I would request more activity based learning instead monotonous one-men presentation.

Good course - solid theory, would like to see more projects than tests though. All in all, worthwhile.

Good introduction to genomic technologies, could cover more information... but it is an introduction.

Liked the introduction, gives a nice overview, well understandable also for the non-biologist.
