Really, really poor. Very very boring lectures. Also, you cannot learn this kind of thing by just showing commands one by one and expecting students to remember. This kind of knowledge has to be applied, which means setting up constant challenges and practical tests. It would help if the tools were applied to a start-to-finish bioinformatics problem on real (but managably small) data which answers specific questions and poses specific biological problems. The course has huge potential becasue these are core bioinformatics tools, but the way it's taught is just so un-engaging.
