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.

TOP REVIEWS FROM MOLECULAR EVOLUTION (BIOINFORMATICS IV)
Good course for improving algorithmic skills and keep learning something new
Yet another course in this series with really high quality content. If you want to learn something about bioinformatics, you're in the right place.
Covers the most important algorithms for phylogenetic trees. Fascinating exam
At some point several instructors lost necessary passion to keep us focused. Otherwise it was a very informed and enjoyable presentation. Historical references are extremely important.
