Bioinformatics Capstone

Big Data in Biology

This course is a part of Bioinformatics, a 7-course Specialization series from Coursera.

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 track the source of a food poisoning outbreak, how RNA-Sequencing can help us analyze gene expression data on the tissue level, and compare the pros and cons of whole genome vs. whole exome sequencing for finding potentially harmful mutations in a human sample. Plus, hacker track students will have the option to build their own genome assembler and apply it to real data!

What people are saying

According to other learners, here's what you need to know

about bioinformatics algorithms in one review

I learned a lot about bioinformatics algorithms from this specialization, especially from the programming assignments.

progress towards completion in one review

This course, as others in Coursera catalog, suffer from Coursera's new learning policies, which deteriorate the learnang experience, significantly slowing progress towards completion.

significantly slowing progress in one review

stepik interactive textbook in one review

This specialization is well organized, and the stepik interactive textbook is a splendid tool for learning.

courses are essentially in one review

Since this and their other courses are essentially unmanned, such limitation is totally needless.

give you full in one review

In particular I refer to their decision NOT to give you full access to course content during the subscription period.
