Liked the classes very much, but it was a little tough for a person like me without the Python basis. Involved extra /work for me, which turned the Deadlines hard to accomplish. However, I found this course's content very interesting. I have prior knowledge in biology and chemistry (from university) and still learned several things. Recommend 9/10.

Classes were very well done, considering the difficulty in putting together two vast subjects such as Computer Science and Biology in a manner so that even beginners in either topic could learn at a reasonable pace without feeling lost. As a Computer Scientist, I would have appreciated a little more in depth coverage of some of the more biology-related topics, as I am lacking in that department; overall, however, a very well done course.
