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 the general problem of dividing data points into distinct clusters.

TOP REVIEWS FROM GENOMIC DATA SCIENCE AND CLUSTERING (BIOINFORMATICS V)
In depth and comprehensive coverage of the topics in genetic data analysis.
Truly awesome. What I liked best was that this course didn't have a peer reviewed final challenge, so I didn't have to wait months until my work was graded :)
Really enjoyed the clustering chapters and the practical exercises with the yeast dataset
The first two week was very good, but for week 3 I don't see the content has any connection with Genomic Data Science.
