This course is the first of a two-course sequence: Introduction to Computer Science and Programming Using Python, and Introduction to Computational Thinking and Data Science. Together, they are designed to help people with no prior exposure to computer science or programming learn to think computationally and write programs to tackle useful problems. Some of the people taking the two courses will use them as a stepping stone to more advanced computer science courses, but for many it will be their first and last computer science courses. This run features updated lecture videos, lecture exercises, and problem sets to use the new version of Python 3.5. Even if you took the course with Python 2.7, you will be able to easily transition to Python 3.5 in future courses, or enroll now to refresh your learning. 

Since these courses may be the only formal computer science courses many of the students take, we have chosen to focus on breadth rather than depth. The goal is to provide students with a brief introduction to many topics so they will have an idea of what is possible when they need to think about how to use computation to accomplish some goal later in their career. That said, they are not "computation appreciation" courses. They are challenging and rigorous courses in which the students spend a lot of time and effort learning to bend the computer to their will.

Gene sequences and the rest of the genome play an important role in determining how an organism functions normally and reacts when situations change. DNA sequences can also be used to determine relationships between organisms and form the underpinnings of the Tree of Life.

Since DNA sequences play such an important role in any organism it should not be surprising that any changes to a sequence could lead to alterations in behavior or response. For example, a small number of specific changes in DNA sequence have been shown to lead to tumor development in mammals or the production of enzymes with altered properties.

One of the jobs of a bioinformatician is to help determine where these changes are in a DNA sequence and sort out in that context what effects may result, which is usually done by aligning the sequences in question.

In this course, part of the Bioinformatics MicroMasters program, you will learn about the theory and algorithms behind DNA alignments, practice doing alignments manually, and then perform more complicated alignments using web and software based approaches.

This course is the second course in a series of two. Both courses provide a solid foundation in the area of reliable distributed computing, including the main concepts, results, models and algorithms in the field.

In order to ensure that IT infrastructures - a key engine of operations for any organization - operate at full capacity and efficiency, it is vital to understand its core: distributed algorithms. To achieve this, the infrastructure itself must be reliable and resilient. This course continues on the foundations of distributed algorithms, introduced in ID2203.1x, and builds on these concepts at a higher level of complexity to develop the skills needed to build and maintain reliable and efficient distributed systems.

ID2203.2x covers specific advanced abstractions and algorithms including sequence consensus and multi-Paxos; atomic broadcast and replicated state machines. It also covers dynamic reconfiguration of services; the use of physical clocks in distributed systems; the CAP theorem, and weaker consistency models, including eventual consistency and conflict-free replicated data-types.

Students will experiment and develop a variety of distributed algorithms in an interactive, engaging programming environment using the Scala programming language. They will be guided throughout the programming assignments and provided with intuitive examples to help them get started.

To complete the course with a full grade (100%) students are required to answer the graded quizzes provided every week, as well as the programming assignments.
