It was well taught. I liked the fact the two professors focused on two different subjects- biology and statistics portion of this course. The paragraphs written below each video was extremely helpful.
Relatively nice introduction course, contents are maybe rather limited, yet as an instructive course, it does provide a clear overview which correlates well with the required answers for the quizzes!

This course is very well suitable for beginners. I am eagerly waiting to start the next course of the specialization for deeper understanding. Although, this course was very informative.
par Khoo L T•
This course had gave me the overview of the statistical analyses for genomic data analysis. This is useful for me as I can employ those statistical Analyses knowledge in the near future
par Thodoris S•
Nice introductory course for those who are new to the interdisciplinary field of bioinformatics. However, experienced users could also skip this course and go straight to the next ones.
par Alicia F•
Complex topics summarized to key points, which is great. One criticism is that some questions on the quizzes required prior knowledge (fact recall) that wasn't covered in the course
par Ben S•
The final project was way more work than any of the other weeks (10 hours!), but it was definitely worth stumbling my way around Galaxy and foreign genomic terms for that long.
par Jaslyn L•
A very nice course, but can be difficult for someone with totally no background in this and other tech/statistic stuff. Really enjoyed the course work though, was interesting.
Good for someone who want to learn about genomic technologies. Those who wanna be expert in this field has to go a lot beyond this course. But this one will be a good start
par Halyna K•
Good introductory course, highly interdisciplinary. You will need some basic knowledge in molecular biology and statistics in order to better understand video lectures
par Gareth H•
This course lays out the foundation for the rest of the Specialization. The course feels a little light on content but the concepts it does cover are well described.
par Samuel D L•
A good, general & quick overview to new technologies in Genomic Data Science.
Recommended to be completed not discretely, but with the entire Specialization Program.
par Giulia P•
Interesting topic, maybe an improvement could be to provide the material as one file and not many files one for each video (also easier to consult in the future).
par Heather R•
Wish it was a bit more challenging for those of us in scientific research, but I understand the need to be broadly applicable. Enjoyed it and learned a lot.
par Lukas J•
A good basic overview of the subject. Can be skipped if you have some biology background as many of these topics are covered during a standard sequence.
par Elia C C M•
Good and helpful introduction on genomics. The use of real life examples was especially important on how we use, protect and analyze our data.
par Monika C•
Introductory course for the subsequent genomic data science courses. The lecturers are smart and their teaching approach is very encouraging.
par Doğancan A•
It was a great introduction about what is genomic data science. I am looking forward to take the other specialization courses from now on.
par Hari v•
The course introduces lots of familiar topics, but challenges in the questioning part which also could be thought in the video lecture.
par Juan J S G•
Muy bueno para empezar con los conceptos básicos necesarios antes de adentrarse de lleno en bioinformática y ciencia de datos genómicos
par Mohammed Y•
This course is an amazing. What students have to do to excel in this course is, they have to study from authentic additional material.
I learned all the basic concepts of genomics.
I still don't know any specific concepts, but I hope to acquire them in further courses.
par Ashray G•
Thank you for the course! I believe more interactivity (with intercalated quizzes) would help content to be absorbed by learners.
par Alok a•
The course is excellent and taught me a complete outline and the importance of genomic computation and how to excel in this field
par MedhiniSourya J•
it would be better if graphical representation are included for easy understanding, to the students who are going into gemonics .
par Mohamed R A•
Excellent topic, though challenging in the sense that it requires multi-field knowledge, biology, comp. science, and statistics
par BHARGAVA R M•
Though the content is introductory and general concepts, it could have been done in a slower pace and a little bit more detail.
