I am a CS student and I am taking a bioinformatics module at my university. As I will probably be coding some visualization tools soon, I would like to better understand how you bioinformaticists and bioinformaticians think and work and what issues do you face. I am also interested in the "gap" between the "computer guys" and the "bio guys" and what can we, the "computer guys" do, to narrow the gap.
So: What are the five most annoying bioinformatics problems you face every week or even every day?
For starters -- try not to exclude women off the bat by referring to "computer guys" and "bio guys".
"2. guys Informal Persons of either sex." guys
I too, will say "Hey, you guys" to a mixed group. But "computer guys" and "bio guys" is different. Maybe it's because I would never say, "Hi, I'm a computer guy".
I don't think anyone says, "I am a computer guy." regardless of sex.
Bioinformatics is just one big annoyance. And yet, one that is strangely addictive and occasionally, quite satisfying.
