What is the course about?

Dynamic Programming: Applications In Machine Learning and Genomics
The course Dynamic Programming: Applications In Machine Learning and Genomics is an online class provided by The University of California, San Diego through edX. The skill level of the course is Intermediate. It may be possible to receive a verified certification or use the course to prepare for a degree.
Learn how dynamic programming and Hidden Markov Models can be used to compare genetic strings and uncover evolution.
Course description
If you look at two genes that serve the same purpose in two different species, how can you rigorously compare these genes in order to see how they have evolved away from each other? In the first part of the course, part of the Algorithms and Data Structures MicroMasters program, we will see how the dynamic programming paradigm can be used to solve a variety of different questions related to pairwise and multiple string comparison in order to discover evolutionary histories. In the second part of the course, we will see how a powerful machine learning approach, using a Hidden Markov Model, can dig deeper and find relationships between less obviously related sequences, such as areas of the rapidly mutating HIV genome.
