A new year, and with it the start of a new course. This time I will be studying bioinformatics, which is an interdisciplinary field that utilizes computer programming to analyze and interpret biological data, especially genomic data.
The reason I selected this course, is because I thought it could be good for enriching and complimenting the knowledge that I acquired during the Genome Analysis course.
I have to admit that the content of this course is very intimidating since I’ve never studied something similar to programming before, however I am very excited about learning something completely new, especially since it’s a subject that has become of extreme importance if you want to thrive as a scientist in the genetics field.
So, wish me good luck! And I’ll be updating on this course and my experiences taking it in future blogs.
Have a nice day!
