Acerca del Curso

In this capstone project course, we'll compare genome sequences of COVID-19 mutations to identify potential areas a drug therapy can look to target. The first step in drug discovery involves identifying target subsequences of theirs genome to target. We'll start by comparing the genomes of virus mutations to look for similarities. Then, we'll perform PCA to cut down our number of dimensions and identify the most common features. Next, we'll use K-means clustering in Python to find the optimal number of groups and trace the lineage of the virus. Finally, we'll predict similarity between the sequences and use this to pick a target subsequence. Throughout the course, each section will consist of a programming assignment coupled with a guide video and helpful hints. By the end, you'll be well on your way to discovering ways to combat disease with genome sequencing....

Worst course/specialization I have run into on Coursera. The instructors are not good and material is lacking. It seems they googled some material and tried to put together a specialization that was completely useless. Let's put it this way. Some of the readings they offered in the courses where links to Wikipedia!!!

Frankly, this was a huge waste of time that I paid for.

I am not going to consider LearnQuest in the future and I would recommend that Coursera check the courses and so-called specializations they get paid for carefully before offering them to the students.

If Coursera had a phone number for students/customer services, I would have asked for my money back, but they don't!!! ( I thought it is illegal to get online payments from customers without having a working phone number). So, I will not be wasting more time than what this "LearnQuest" specialization has already wasted for me.

What a rip-off!

T​he course can't be completed due to a grading error in the Week 2 assignment that hasn't been fixed for months.
