We will learn computational methods -- algorithms and data structures -- for analyzing DNA sequencing data. We will learn a little about DNA, genomics, and how DNA sequencing is used. We will use Python to implement key algorithms and data structures and to analyze real genomes and DNA sequencing datasets.

TOP REVIEWS FROM ALGORITHMS FOR DNA SEQUENCING
An excellent course designed to prepare students for real challenges. Thank you Dr. Langmead, JHU and Coursera for designing such a beautiful course!
John Hopkin University provides an excellent course. It is effective for postdoctoral fellows and early career researchers, primarily those in the STEM fields !
very engaging and well-presented course material.
intermediate difficulty while conveying the basics of how even recent real-world genome alignment and assembly tools work. great course design!
This was really fun. Really enjoyed the a-ha of the algorithms and the fun of solving the alignment and assembly problems. Feel mildly powerful after assembling a virus genome.
