Thank you very much for this course through which i learnt basic handling of bioinformatics tools and concepts of WGS. This will help me a lot while pursuing my PhD research work in my field.
Excellent course with a wealth of information about tools and applications of whole genome sequencing. Presented in a very lucid and interesting manner, very crispy and simplified course.

I thought this would be informative but the entire course is basically an infomercial for using their web based tools. Which to some, could be helpful but any serious bioinformatician should avoid.

I liked some of the sections but the course is really focused on the platform developed by its university, so despite it is useful it does not give examples of another tool like BLAST

Poderiam explicar mais a fundo algumas definições e me pareceu que algumas ferramentas estão desatualizadas (Ex: Ferramenta para montagem, Velvet, a mais usada no momento é a Spades)

Good lectures, but unfortunately there is little general background transferred through this course. The lectures and the quiz seem mainly to be advertisement for their tools.

The course itself is great, unfortunately the person who designed it and is the main speaker has incomprehensible English, to a point that one needs triple the exertion to understand her. The transcript of the speech seems to be automatically generated, so one can not even read the lecture to understand it.

Can not even pass the first quiz, even with correct answers. The two videos based off the questions don't answer some of the questions if at all, and a google search or more in depth search revealed the correct answers, however the quiz continued to be incorrect no matter what correct answers you gave it.
Week 1 videos just throw a bunch of acronyms, without explaining anything, not even in depth, but in their relevance for the topic of the course. Similiarly, later weeks continously bring more terms with little explanation of them and providing little logic how are they connected to each other. Quizes don't relate to informations from vidoes anyhow or do so only in some of questions. Quizes don't provide any feedback.

The assignments are very difficult and I dont think the lectures provide enough information to do the assignments. Dont recommend this course.
