Ep21 - Bioinformatics - What You Should Know

Posted on Tuesday, Oct 20, 2020
In this episode of Computationally Yours, host Dr. Sabah Kadri discusses a topic she has been mulling over converting into an episode for a long time - the nuts and bolts of Bioinformatics. She introduces the field, discusses its fuzzy history and then shares nuggets of wisdom for both new and aspiring Bioinformaticians talking about things she wishes she knew when she was starting out. We would love to hear from you if you think we missed something or you would like us to cover something more.
