Algorithms and Data Structures Capstone (edX)
Synthesize your knowledge of algorithms and biology to build your own software for solving a biological challenge. Building a fully-fledged algorithm to assemble genomes from DNA fragments on a real dataset is an enormous challenge with major demand in the multi-billion dollar biotech industry. In this capstone project, we will take the training wheels off and let you design your own optimized software program for genome sequencing.
