The course is over. Only one thing I can be sure about: I learned a lot. Cannot say the same about the students. Probably I gave too much biology to the applied math students and too much mathematics to the bioinformatics students. Unfortunately, despite the fact that the math program at Lomonosov University (Department of bioengineering and bioinformatics) is quite serious, the students (well, most of them) lack abstract thinking. Next time it has to be more examples with numbers, not just general theorems. And of course the final test was a sheer disappointment.
Anyway, I am extremely glad that I had an opportunity to give this course to two very different audiences at the same time.
And as usual: Any comments are welcome.
Happy New Year to everyone!
