Great beginner bioinformatics course for computer scientists (note that I have no Python experience before, but it can be learnt from this course)!

The Stepik textbook needs to be updated. The quantity of test cases and the quality leave a lot to be determined. The format of input on the quizzes needs to be specified more clearly. Otherwise a great course but I would not market it towards beginners.

Great courses for beginners

Very interesting introduction to both bioinformatics and Python
