I have just had my BSc in Computer Science and I am looking to inquire about which field I should pursue in completing my masters degree. My graduation project was related to protein docking. I analyzed different approaches to improve the performance of scoring functions by using different techniques such as machine learning. I also implemented some scoring functions like X-Score and RF-Score. I have experience in using programs like Vina, AutoDock and Open Babel. I also implemented a simple molecular viewer. I have a good amount of knowledge in the field of structure-based drug design. So I am looking for some advice on which field would accept me as a masters students though I graduated from computer science. Any recommendation would help. Examples of approaches I am looking to get into are Computational Chemistry, Biophysics… What would be the most suitable for me to complete a masters degree and what is better as a career option? Any advice will be appreciated.

Such open ended questions are very hard to get/give good answers for. Now-a-days many academic programs welcome students from diverse backgrounds. Depending on the program you may be asked to take additional courses that may be a requirement for that department but then you bring some skills along that people in that department may lack. Pursue something that gives you actually like doing and that you feel you would be able to get a good grasp of in a reasonable amount of time.

Hello Karim!

We believe that this post does not fit the main topic of this site.

We can't know what would be the most suitable for you, and it is not a bioinformatics question.

For this reason we have closed your question. This allows us to keep the site focused on the topics that the community can help with.

If you disagree please tell us why in a reply below, we'll be happy to talk about it.
