Very informative! Everybody should take this course, to know more about their own microbiome...\n\nThe first lessons are not so exciting, but hang in there! The most interesting parts come later ;)
It was a good experience, and while I'm not too big on microbiology in general, I was intrigued in the role our microbiome plays in our lives. The summer I did this changed my life in a way. :)

Really informative course and helps to learn about the basics in microbiome science and the used techniques to study the microbiome for different purposes. Thanks a lot for the course team as well as coursera :)

Excellent introduction to the gut microbiome and its importance to our health. Lots of science but would have like a little more information about how to increase and balance the microbiome through nutrition.

The lab portion was a little too quick for me; well, long because I didn't understand it. I need more in depth to understand how all the extracting and testing happens.

Waiting on the completing peer review work and the grading of my own work in Week 6 was stressful and annoying. Overall though, this was a good course! Thanks!
Loved the idea of this course but a bit out of my league. I wanted more on the data and applying it in real life rather than how the data is collected.

The course is very clear and touches important aspects of Human Microbiota. It just needs more updates, because the field is rapidly growing. Thanks.

The only thing that would create a five star rating, would be more valuable interaction among fellow students, and with the instructor as well.

This class was very enlightening. I liked how the videos went along with the quizzes and it was easy to articulate what everyone was saying.

Really well built and beginner-friendly course. I would've liked to hear more in-detail descriptions of host-microbe interactions. Cheers.
A very intersting and informative course for all who are interested with gut microbiome as well as ways to determine gut microbiome.

Good course, I liked everything except reading from cards that made the lectures feel very artifical.
