Algorithms on Strings

University of California, San Diego and Higher School of Economics via Coursera


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.

    The concepts in the first two weeks are poorly taught. You have to either read some books or watch videos from somewhere else to understand the concepts.
