This course has the most enthusiastic, offbeat and committed instructors I've ever met. The duo takes the learners on amazing trip into the fascinating world of bioinformatics, using examples and analogies from everyday life and popculture as a background. Good work, guys!

There were a few place where I wish the explanations of the algorithm were more clear. The instructors were very good but wish they did like a 1/2 hour of Q&A every week or something. I did find the Coursera interface to be non-intuitive at first but it was OK afterwards. The instructions about grading policies left a lot to be desired. There was a quiz where they suddenly changed the grading policy from 3 attempts to only the first attempt will count and never made it clear while I was doing attempt 2. Consequtively, I thought I had passed the course when in fact I was short by a few points. Coupled with the fact that Coursera Customer "service" is non-existent or not helpful, made for a somewhat frustrating experience in the end. All in all, was a pretty good course but can't get close to taking the same course in the university setting.
