I'm going to start my PhD soon. As the starting point of my career (I consider), I would like to discuss about the careers of bioinformaticians.
In a long term, to prepare for a career in industry or academia, what are the most important skills a bioinformatician need to be trained during PhD life.
Of course, individual development depends a lot on personal interests. Personally, I'm interested in work as a scientist in pharmaceutical industry. Is that important for a person like me to train my self working as much as with medical data, or general skills are more important? What kind of skills are most needed in industry and academia from bioinformaticians?
I appreciate any kind of comments and discussions.
