About this Specialization
Be a part of Us in a Prime 50 MOOC of All Time!
How can we sequence and evaluate genomes? How can we establish the genetic foundation for illness? How can we assemble an evolutionary Tree of Life for all species on Earth?
Once you full this Specialization, you’ll learn to reply many questions in fashionable biology which have develop into inseparable from the computational approaches used to unravel them. Additionally, you will acquire a toolkit of current software program assets constructed on these computational approaches and which might be utilized by hundreds of biologists on daily basis in one of many quickest rising fields in science.
Though this Specialization facilities on computational subjects, you do not want to know how one can program in an effort to full it. In case you are interested by programming, we characteristic an “Honors Monitor” (referred to as “hacker monitor” in earlier runs of the course). The Honors Monitor lets you implement the bioinformatics algorithms that you’ll encounter alongside the way in which in dozens of robotically graded coding challenges. By finishing the Honors Monitor, you can be a bioinformatics software program skilled!
Be taught extra in regards to the Bioinformatics Specialization (together with why we’re sporting these loopy outfits) by watching our introductory video.
You should purchase the Specialization’s print companion, Bioinformatics Algorithms: An Lively Studying Method, from the textbook web site.
Our first course, “Discovering Hidden Messages in DNA”, was named a top-50 MOOC of all time by Class Central!
