Hi everyone, I’m student in molecular biology and genetic bachelor's degree. My future plan become academician and I want to specialize in medical genetic and epigenetic and I have a question. I love programing and computer science, studying in computer is not working for me as like studying mbg. for this reason should I specialized in bioinformatics? Because I love biology actually molecular biology.
My idea is I should go bioinformatics program because even if i became a geneticist or epigenesist, I saw we have to know some bioinformatics tool\skills if I won’t live off of someone, bioinformatics skills also improve my ability’s. and differences between two program don’t have much insoluble lecture, maximum difference is internship, lots of mbg program have 8 or 10 lecture in one year(it’s up to you) other year full intern ship almost 9 month and 2-3 maybe much different place that interest-based on you. And I can keep up this program if I also do internship in some lab. (Can I?) Based on my idea going bioinformatics program, even if I feel sorry for this decision I can fix doing internship (fixing about couldn’t improving lab skills), and I get away with improving bioinformatics skills after I can go with inner peace medical genetic PhD program, if I didn’t feel sory I walk on the bioinformatics road.
So, I need your recommendation or idea, please write any thing what you think and be included my future.
Thank you all answering already now and sory for my perferct english :)
