Acerca del Curso

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.\n\nThis is where programming can be fun, and practical, and you'll learn some basic biology too.\n\nWhat's not to love?

I learned a lot from this difficult and time-consuming course! It covers biological concepts using Python. It made learning Python more interesting for me, since I have always loved biology.

Programming part not well explained and too difficult- it can clearly be seen from the comments that many people have the same issues

Gets quickly very confusing and difficult. Also, do the Codeacademy Python class before even starting this course.

Programming Level is NOT FOR BEGINNERS. The Codecademy was useless when compared to the coding assignments given.

the coding aspect were neither clear nor easy enough for a biologist who is new to programming to grasp

Too complicated for a beginner's course, the quizzes don't match the stepik chapters.

It is hard for beginners. Especially for some who has no computer lesson background.

It has been the most stressful and frustrating course, certainly not for beginners.

Its called Bioinformatics for "Beginners", when it is still extremely difficult.

This course was supposed to be for beginners, but I found that this is not the case at all. I had to spend about 10 hours a week for about four months outside of the course using other resources to actually be able to complete it. The fact that each question in the interactive learner does not show the full code is extremely limiting and frustrating for people completely new to learning to code. I would not recommend this course to others as a result.

This course is definitely not for beginners. It takes too much more time than it mentions and fails to guide beginners in the bioinformatics field properly. Would not recommend it at all.

The course is surely not for beginners and it takes a lot more time than 4 hours a week.

Not for beginners and the output window is badly programmed.
