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.

A nice and satisfying course aimed for beginners in programming and biology, but you need to be prepared to use google and do some research on your own to fill some knowledge gaps.

I learned so much in this course and it was so cool to see the intersection between computer science and biology! Thank you so much to the instructors for making this course!

As the title saids, this course is pretty good for beginners. I major in biology and have no programming experience. Now I have more confidence to challenge advanced courses.
Fantastic course. If you are a Python beginner it is a great way to practise solving problems with Python. While also learning about DNA, which was absolutely fascinating.

Great introductory material for a new person to Bioinformatics, Python, or a both. Definitely feel more "natural" in Python and well versed in Bioinformatics concepts.

I am gonna be honest .if you are a beginner level in python please make sure to practice some more or gain some more experience in python before beginning with this

It managed to keep me interested in learning programming to solve biological questions. As a biologist its the most I can ask from any such course. Thanks a lot.

Really good, but in Stepik it should be easier to know the mistakes you have made when you enter the code. But I learned very much thanks to this course.
I am a biotechnology student and this course helped me to approach a biology problem from programming angle. It is a very great course to begin with

Great beginner bioinformatics course for computer scientists (note that I have no Python experience before, but it can be learnt from this course)!

Enjoyed learning this class although it is challenging. It will be better if it won't cost anything for get a certificate after finish the class.

excellent for beginners, very informative and encourages we learners to take specialization in Bioinformatics. thank you all the instructors !

Gives a perfect insight into Bioinformatics and is very interesting. Even if you do not know to program you will be able to understand it.

Excellent introduction to coding in Python, as well as a great refresher on some key biological concepts and their use in bioinformatics.

It's great to basically understand how to use programming language (Python) to handle biology issues. I learn a lot from this course.
by Emanuele C•
Thanks for this nice course.
I would recommend to avoid exercises with very long calculations that cause time-limit problems.
by aarushi r•
It really enhanced my programming skills and a good course for anyone who wants to start a fresh with programming and biosciences.

This course is perfect as a first approximation to codes and algorithms in Bioinformatics. It will fit very well for begginers!!
by Noa G•
great introduction, not too hard, great explanations and videos allowing for repetition of content for a better understanding
by Brian B•
Excellent intro to Bioinformatics - the course is not afraid of asking some seemingly tough questions and I took a lot away.
by Jiseok L•
Overall very good introduction to Bioinformatics and python coding, but some materials and explanations are not very clear.
by Sara M V•
It was a really interesting course! Some exercises were challenging but it was very rewarding when you found the solution.
by Song C•
Very specific introduction ranging from molecular basis to a appropriate intro of info theory. Good course to begin with!

I really the course. However, if you are an engineer you will have some problems to understand some biological concepts.
