What is the course about?

Graph Algorithms in Genome Sequencing
The course Graph Algorithms in Genome Sequencing 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 graphs are used to assemble millions of pieces of DNA into a contiguous genome and use these genomes to construct a Tree of Life.
Course description
In this course, part of the Algorithms and Data Structures MicroMasters program, you will learn how graph algorithms are used in two fundamental problems in modern biology: How do we sequence a genome? How do we construct an evolutionary “Tree of Life?” In the first part of the course, you will learn how genome sequencing relies on using a graph to assemble millions of tiny DNA fragments into a contiguous genome. We will then shift gears and learn how to construct an evolutionary tree of life from genome data.
