World and internet is full of textual information. We search for information using textual queries, we read websites, books, e-mails. All those are strings from the point of view of computer science. To make sense of all that information and make search efficient, search engines use many string algorithms. Moreover, the emerging field of personalized medicine uses many search algorithms to find disease-causing mutations in the human genome. In this online course you will learn key pattern matching concepts: tries, suffix trees, suffix arrays and even the Burrows-Wheeler transform.

Unfortunately the forums go inactive after the first few iterations of the course. One can still learn by doing the programming assignments
It would be nice if you could deliver the problem's solutions after the course ended. I ran out of ideas for the BetterBWMatching problem and i couldn't overcome the time issues.
Great course, and part of a great specialization. Lesson are well constructed, and the assignments reflect the lectures very well.
Initially the accent was a little bit hard to understand, but after few minutes everything become crystal clear. Extremely useful course content.
