I've seen that Stanford's Coursera teaches stuff like machine learning with no basics required whatsoever. As it's obvious from the name of this thread, I know nothing about this field. I've been hearing about genetic coding lately and how you can use it for various applications. This got me intrigued. Is there any e-learning website or any other source from which I can learn more about genetic coding? Or was this a total waste of about 60 words?

What do you mean by genetic coding exactly? You make it sound like learning Python.

There are obviously lots of information sources about genetics in general. I'd suggest starting there.

You should start by building your background knowledge of genetics. As mentioned, there should be plenty of online sources.

Hi,
I had an optional module in Genetic Programming in my MSc Computer Science degree [not unexpectedly, nexttime and other medics were thinking of the medical subject Genetics, but this is more mathematical!] - was planning to take it up, so bought a book on it, but then decided on IDA (Intelligent Data Analysis) module.


You can have the book if you like - will only cost you a Mac (even 007 needs junk food occasionally! - guys need food as you will understand if you are a guy - ask bro if you are a girl!).
