I am currently an undergraduate student in the U.S. and I am considering a career working in bioinformatics. I am a Biology major but I love to program and have taught myself R and a little bit of a few other languages. I am pretty proficient in R as my research is conducted in R.
For people who currently work in the field, what do you like about the job and what do you dislike?
Also, If a person has pretty reputable programming knowledge, is there need to get a graduate degree?
