Sorry, no enrollment data is available.
There were two professors that taught this class (Bogdan Pasaniuc and Jason Ernst), switching off every week to cover topics that they are experts in. The content is interesting and more importantly, it exposes you to relevant papers in Bioinformatics that may not be in the same line of research you are conducting (if you are in CompBio research). The 7 homeworks were graded based on participation and were fairly simple and short, released on Tuesday and due on Thursday (of the same week). There was also a final project, for which they provided many sample projects as well as allowing you to make a novel project off of your research. There was one mini presentation on your chosen project in week 7 (5 minutes) and the final project presentation was in week 10 (10 minutes). There were no exams and overall was an interesting and low workload course. (The professors are also super nice and are willing to answer any questions you have)
