In Spring 2011, thousands of people in Germany were hospitalized with a deadly disease that started as food poisoning with bloody diarrhea and often led to kidney failure. It was the beginning of the deadliest outbreak in recent history, caused by a mysterious bacterial strain that we will refer to as E. coli X. Soon, German officials linked the outbreak to a restaurant in Lübeck, where nearly 20% of the patrons had developed bloody diarrhea in a single week. At this point, biologists knew that they were facing a previously unknown pathogen and that traditional methods would not suffice – computational biologists would be needed to assemble and analyze the genome of the newly emerged pathogen.

TOP REVIEWS FROM GENOME ASSEMBLY PROGRAMMING CHALLENGE
hi, this is a hard course and the videos are not sufficient. but finally i finished.
thanks a lot
It's a great experience with learning a Genome Assembly.
May be the course would have given more hints. But a learned a lot from the projects.
very challenging course, but still very good and you learn a lot
