Hi monks,

In the last few months I've been testing my Perl 5 and Perl 6 skills with the excellent bioinformatics-learning site rosalind.info. I managed to reach a decent level there, but I confess that lately it has become more and more difficult for me to solve problems . Some algorithms are becoming very tough to imagine, and it's not always possible to cheat ;-) So basically I've solved about two thirds of the problems but now I'm lacking motivation and strength to go on.

I recently learnt that a bioinformatics course will begin on coursera. I know coursera a bit, having followed the excellent course about machine learning. I kind of hope this one on bioinformatics will be as good, and will help me to solve more problems on rosalind.

Anyway, I thought I could make some publicity about this course. It will begin on October, 21st. I can't promise it will be fun or interesting and all, but it could.

Bioinformatics is known to be one of the field where Perl is quite popular. So I thought it is worth mentioning and adverting any opportunity for Perl people to learn about it.
