Large-scale biology projects such as the sequencing of the human genome and gene expression surveys using RNA-seq, microarrays and other technologies have created a wealth of data for biologists. However, the challenge facing scientists is analyzing and even accessing these data to extract useful information pertaining to the system being studied. This course focuses on employing existing bioinformatic resources – mainly web-based programs and databases – to access the wealth of data to answer questions relevant to the average biologist, and is highly hands-on.

Gives the student real world exposure to the tools to study proteins gene regulation, etc. Instructor is involved and friendly. Highly recommended for someone who is interested in contemporary
Hi Nicholas, Thank you so much for giving a lot of information. Bioinformatic Methods II was little difficult but understood after repeating the lad discussions. Thanks a lot.
I really appreciate these series of courses, I want to thank Prof. Provart and his coligues for their great job on preparing and presenting these series. Thanks a lot!
Excellent course with excellent support by the Professor and Mentor. Covers what you need to know about protein bioinformatics and detailed expression analysis.
The course was great. I have developed and learnt so much that can be applied to my thesis. i especially love the hands on lab.
I use this course as a good resource it has been very helpfull for me the explanation of Dr Provart are incredibly good.
I was a very very useful course, specially the heatmap plot generation and R language lab exercises was great!
Excellent course to enhance skills in Bioinformatics. Thanks to the instructor and Coursera!
Excellent course! The professor was great and very responsive to the forums on the course.
Very informative. Loved the course. keep making more please
Quite good introductory course for Bioinformatics.
