World and internet is full of textual information. We search for information using textual queries, we read websites, books, e-mails. All those are strings from the point of view of computer science. To make sense of all that information and make search efficient, search engines use many string algorithms. Moreover, the emerging field of personalized medicine uses many search algorithms to find disease-causing mutations in the human genome. In this online course you will learn key pattern matching concepts: tries, suffix trees, suffix arrays and even the Burrows-Wheeler transform.

TOP REVIEWS FROM ALGORITHMS ON STRINGS
The professor explained clearly as usual. The first 3 weeks is not too hard but final week took me really long time to understand.
A good course giving insight into how important string algorithms are for not only to computer science community but also its use in other disciplines like bioinformatics etc.
Learned a lot in the class. It was really excellent. But many a times we need to hear twice to understand some of the concepts clearly.
Suffix Array and Suffix Tree was the hardest part so far from all the previous courses in this specialization
