Hi all ...
I have recently finished my M.Sc. degree in computer science and conducted a thesis in comparative analysis under bioinformatics field and managed to publish a short version of it. Now I'm a phD student intending to complete my research path on the same field, but I have a problem starting from that point because the original idea is owned by my former supervisors and I'm not allowed to proceed with it.
How can I benefit from the knowledge I have gained during my thesis preparation and walk in a closer track without getting lost in new field's basics and requirements... the main purpose is investing the time in a perfect way without reinventing the wheel. I have gained some good knowledge in comparative analysis using tools like BLAST and Clustal Omega, and BioPython programming.
Are there any ideas appropriate for a phD dissertation that can be inferred from that work ?!
Thanks in advance.
