To ensure that a course functions as a great introduction to a subject, make sure to check the prerequisites on the course page on the original platform.
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
This course is a mixture of modern technology and biology. It tries to find a hidden message in DNA using modern technology. You will learn a lot about DNA replication, where in the genome does DNA replication begin and also you will learn about DNA in general. More information
There is still a big question for all the biologists and that is what is genome sequencing. This course will dig deep into this question and will help you understand genome sequencing better. You will be provided with a lot of visual help to help you better understand this complicated question and you will learn something new for sure. More information
Once we have sequenced genomes in the previous course, we would like to compare them to determine how species have evolved and what makes them different. In the first half of the course, we will compare two short biological sequences, such as genes (i.e., short sequences of DNA) or proteins. We wi More information
In the previous course in the Specialization, we learned how to compare genes, proteins, and genomes. One way we can use these methods is in order to construct a "Tree of Life" showing how a large collection of related organisms have evolved over time. In the first half of the course, we will disc More information
In previous courses in the Specialization, we have discussed how to sequence and compare genomes. This course will cover advanced topics in finding mutations lurking within DNA and proteins. In the first half of the course, we would like to ask how an individual's genome differs from the "reference More information
In this course, you will learn how to use the BaseSpace cloud platform developed by Illumina (our industry partner) to apply several standard bioinformatics software approaches to real biological data. In particular, in a series of Application Challenges will see how genome assembly can be used to More information
Practical bioinformatics for beginner to intemediate
How do we infer which genes orchestrate various processes in the cell? How did humans migrate out of Africa and spread around the world? In this class, we will see that these two seemingly different questions can be addressed using similar algorithmic and machine learning techniques arising from th More information
