Very good course. String algorithms are very important in day today life and one should really know how to solve command problems related to it. This course have described everything so well.

Very well put together course. Challenging but understandable. I highly recommend you stick out. If you get stuck check the forums there's lots of helpful things there. Time well spent!

Quite a few times the algorithms were poorly explained, with incomplete or misleading pseudocode.

This module is a little less interesting than the other ones. Also the explanations are a bit more messy and not as thorough.

Continuing a steep curve, but I feel some of the assignments and psuedo-code are not as well explained in these lectures as in earlier ones.

I didn't think the lectures or slides in this course were clear and informative. It seems like they are going for the briefest, most efficient exposition possible. Which is not the same as making the material clear and understandable.

I think last week was too complex and not that exciting.

KMP Algorithm not explained well. Initial few lectures on BWT were very fast.

The explanation of suffix arrays and suffix trees could have been more slow and details explanation. I still had to refer videos on youtube to understand those.

It really disappointed me.It was really badly illustrated especially in Burrow-Wheeler Transform. I total lost even watching video lectures many times. Burrow-Wheeler Transform and Inverse Burrow-Wheeler Transform are complex and complicated. The teacher only gave some specific examples and explanation is not clear.

Really interesting stuff, but the explanations are not always very clear. Some of the algorithms are quite complex and they cannot be made any easier than that, but some well chosen visualizations would do wonders.

This course is not precisely bad, but it's very lacking compared to the other courses in the specialization. Here are my complaints:
-Much of the more interesting bits say "check out this other course in bioinformatics for details". Of course, if you aren't registered for that other course, you don't have access to those materials.
-Not a lot of thought went into the homeworks. All of them are "implement this. Here is some pseudocode", with no "think about a problem that can be solved with the same ideas", like the other courses in the specialization (which are, in my opinion, much better).
-We saw 4 algorithms for string matching (KMP, Rabin-Karp, suffix array matching, Burrow-Wheeler's transform), but virtually no discussion on when to use each one, strengths and weaknesses, and so on. Also, no Boyer-Moore?
-After passing all test cases for a homework, we should be able to download a solution with the correct implementation, in order to improve our own.

The excercises should be set up to be more comfortable.

Sometimes explanations in lectures are hardly understandable and examples are not very descriptive. I had search more clear explanation by himself.

too much focus on DNA problem domain, too abstract & fancy-pants complications for any practical use
interesting as an intellectual exercise tho, the power of chaining crazy ideas to solve hard problems
