Join Us in a Top 50 MOOC of All Time! How do we sequence and compare genomes? How do we identify the genetic basis for disease? How do we construct an evolutionary Tree of Life for all species on Earth? When you complete this Specialization, you will learn how to answer many questions in modern biology that have become inseparable from the computational approaches used to solve them. You will also obtain a toolkit of existing software resources built on these computational approaches and that are used by thousands of biologists every day in one of the fastest growing fields in science. Although this Specialization centers on computational topics, you do not need to know how to program in order to complete it. If you are interested in programming, we feature an "Honors Track" (called "hacker track" in previous runs of the course). The Honors Track allows you to implement the bioinformatics algorithms that you will encounter along the way in dozens of automatically graded coding challenges. By completing the Honors Track, you will be a bioinformatics software professional! Learn more about the Bioinformatics Specialization (including why we are wearing these crazy outfits) by watching our introductory video. You can purchase the Specialization's print companion, Bioinformatics Algorithms: An Active Learning Approach, from the textbook website. Our first course, "Finding Hidden Messages in DNA", was named a top-50 MOOC of all time by Class Central!

生物信息学专业化:加入我们,成为有史以来50大MOOC! 我们如何测序和比较基因组?我们如何确定疾病的遗传基础?我们如何为地球上的所有物种构建进化的生命之树? 完成本专业后,您将学习如何回答现代生物学中许多与解决这些问题的计算方法不可分割的问题。您还将获得以这些计算方法为基础的现有软件资源的工具包,在科学发展最快的领域之一中,成千上万的生物学家每天都会使用该工具包。 尽管本专业集中在计算主题上,但是您不需要知道如何编程即可完成它。如果您对编程感兴趣,我们会提供一个“荣誉追踪”(在本课程的前几期中称为“黑客追踪”)。使用Honors Track,您可以实现在许多自动分级的编码挑战中遇到的生物信息学算法。完成荣誉课程后,您将成为生物信息学软件的专业人士! 通过观看介绍性视频,了解有关生物信息学专业化的更多信息(包括为什么我们穿这些疯狂的衣服)。 您可以从课本网站上购买该专业化的印刷伴侣“生物信息学算法:一种主动学习方法”。 我们的第一门课程“在DNA中查找隐藏的消息”被Class Central评为有史以来前50名MOOC!

Title:Finding Hidden Messages in DNA (Bioinformatics I)

Description:Named a top 50 MOOC of all time by Class Central!

Course: 2

Course Link:

Title:Genome Sequencing (Bioinformatics II)

Description:You may have heard a lot about genome sequencing and its potential to usher in an era of personalized medicine, but what does it mean to sequence a genome?

Course: 3

Course Link:

Title:Comparing Genes, Proteins, and Genomes (Bioinformatics III)

Description:Once we have sequenced genomes in the previous course, we would like to compare them to determine how species have evolved and what makes them different.

Course: 4

Course Link:

Title:Molecular Evolution (Bioinformatics IV)

Description:In the previous course in the Specialization, we learned how to compare genes, proteins, and genomes. One way we can use these methods is in order to construct a "Tree of Life" showing how a large collection of related organisms have evolved over time.
