I am planning to do a Master in Bioinformatics with a focus on developing an algorithm and later a software.
My problem is I have no clue what project to propose. I want it to be something that is not too hard and something that allows me to publish at least one paper. Of course, it is better that my algorithm/software is needed and has practicality for scientists but this is my third goal.
A bit on my background: I have a degree in biotechnology and have little experience working with bioinformatics softwares. I do not have a university degree in programming (hence my goal to have a not too hard project) but I have been learning algorithms and data structures and python for a few weeks and I have almost 3 months time to start my Master, which I will use to practice my programming skills.
Thank you :)
