great course, interesting concepts and very well delivered content from lecture videos. challenging and rewarding programming assignments.

Its a very good course overall. Just felt that towards the end the material got too much to digest, might be a good idea to split the contents of weeks 3 and 4 into 3 or 4 weeks.

Interesting topics; especially useful to people with an interest on bioinformatics.

Very interesting algorithms in this course
