Hi All,

Hope all are fine and Safe.

I am new to this forum. I found lot of experienced professionals who may be able to help me out with my query.

I am desperately in need of an advice to get back to Bioinformatics after a couple of years of experience in Biopharmaceutical industry, worked in molecular biology and protein purification. I have done my Masters in Bioinformatics with Cheminformatics diploma. Due to some reasons i was not able to continue in Bioinformatics filed. But now I am planning to get back in Bioinformatics in full swing. I had started with some online refresher courses a year back and now getting some hands on in Python and R and some updates on NGS technology. I am interested in NGS technology and Machine Learning.So, I would like to know how should i move further to get a good practical knowledge on this. Will doing a Phd in Bioinformatics/Computational Biology help me out so that i can gain back more domain knowledge or is there any other options i can go for?

Looking forward for an advice so that it may help me out to do something i am still passionate about even after so many years of break.

Thanks and Regards,

GS

Similar to doing a PhD without the degree but probably better pay would be to get a job in the domain, just look for jobs which offer some learning opportunities, for example in academic support facilities.

Thank you Sir, for the reply. if you have any suggestions, Can you put forward? I have seen in most of the job applications either Phd or a good amount of experience is required. I have 8+ research experience in wet lab but not in dry lab. So, I am in dilemma whether a training or a Phd will help me to get a job in Bioinformatics field?

It depends on the type of job and type of work you want to be doing.

Yes, that's true. Any suggestion for some good journals on this area and even in Data Science?
