Hello,
My formal training is in biology, but my field of study bioinformatics. I have been desperately trying to increase my skills in areas which I had little exposure to as an undergraduate, computer science and mathematics. Now, I am trying to figure out what areas of mathematics I should focus on learning to open a breadth of possible areas of interest in graduate school. So my question is this: What areas of high-level mathematics do you use in your research, and what is that area of research?

Thank you very much!
