TOP REVIEWS FROM BIG DATA, GENES, AND MEDICINE
Excellent course for studying molecular analysis and medical data. Thank Coursera for your support!
it was a good and useful course. it just needs an update because of some changes in the cbioportal.
Should have focused more on the coding part. Rest of the course was informative and well structured.
Great place to start for those wanting to obtain a bioinformatic skill base. The skills I learned during this course have had a positive impact upon my current lab project. Well worth your time!
