Hi everyone. First of all, i'd give you some basic overview of me.
I am a graduated student in the CS and Applied Math. Сloser to the end of my education I became interested in biology, genetics etc and also started participating in population genetics lectures at my University as a auditor. I'm pretty good at programming in java, python, R, applied math and statistics. Now i'm getting master's degree in Data analysis and have a bioinformatics project as a thesis. I'm very interested in biology, genetics and especially in computer biology algorithms.
My questions are:
1. What skills and knowledge should junior bioinformatician have to start work?
2. Is there any opportunities to start work at any company (not as University department/lab employee)?
I should explain the second question in more details. My problem is that i don't want to be a researcher (scientist way) and i've come across only with people who works as a bioinformatician scientist.
Is there a place for a guy, who just wants to make code and use apply math and modeling in biology? (without researching, publishing articles etc.)
Thanks for answers and sorry for my english.
