カリフォルニア大学サンディエゴ校 による Biology Meets Programming: Bioinformatics for Beginners の受講者のレビューおよびフィードバック



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.

This is where programming can be fun, and practical, and you'll learn some basic biology too.

What'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.

great introduction, not too hard, great explanations and videos allowing for repetition of content for a better understanding

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!

by Mauro G C


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

by MA T


A good course for biologist with little coding skill. The python knowledge used in this course is very straightforward

by Ling-Han J


The design of class is very sophisticated, which is quite friendly to beginners. Looking forward to the rest classes.

by Gabriel C F


Estou gostando bastante do curso. O conteúdo é rico em informações que no final ajudam a ir atrás de mais conteúdo.

by Juris L


Amazing course with amazing pace and approach. Would recommend just one thing: describe and illustrate a bit more.

by Daniel C


A very entertaining way to learn programming and applying this new acquired knowledge to real problems in biology.

by Sim K H


In this course, I learnt how to think and code logically in order to computationally solve a biological question.

by Sofia R


Awesome! There's biology information and there's programming practice!

It's fantastic, thanks to the instructors!

by Shoken L


I am more motivated to learn bioinformatics than I was before taking this class. Thank you for the great class.

by Smily C


This course helps me learn someting new in this field. I hope that I can learn further thing in the future.

by Mrinal S


Very useful and informative course with thorough knowledge on how to code things related to Bioinformatics.L

by Eyal W


Great course, very interesting.

Some of the python quizes are confusing but the comment are surely helpful!

by 常真


thank you guys,the most difficult lesson I have got,but I love the feelings when I finally accomplish it.

by Satavisha R


Amazing course. I learned plenty and can't wait to learn further more and apply the concepts to my work.

by Martin H


Great course. Its challenging but also very rewarding. Will try to keep up with the subsequent courses.

by brennon s


Well written and easy-to-follow. Requires very little searching for information not presented in course

by Juan M


Very helpful, definitely recommend the course. Helped me learn Python and the basics of Bioinformatics

by Franco D


Pretty good course, be ready from a Programming perspective (Python) because it ramps up pretty fast.

by Mufeeda C


I would suggest this course who have intermediate knowledge in programming, not for beginners.

by Parth P


this was an awesome way of learning! especially the external interactive tool is jus amazing!
