I am new to this website and I've found it very useful as a person who just started exploring Bioinformatics field. I already have a degree in Medicine and interesting in shifting to Bioinformatics now (not sure about the particular subfield yet). I have already started a Introduction to CS and Programming in Python course from MIT as well as Intro to Biology MIT course taught by Eric Lander to refresh my knowledge of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, and Genetics and planning to take more advanced biology-related courses later on. I am pretty familiar with things that need to be learned at first so I would be very glad to find people who also are just starting their journey to Bioinformatics and, probably, organize some learning community. Ideally if there would be people with different background: either biological or from CS.
Anyway, will be thankful to hear your thoughts as well as some advice about the ideal learning path from experts in the field.
