Hello all. I got this personal message last night from Ron. Did anybody else get the same message? It looks like it was sent out in bulk as it refers to me as "Sir".
Rohan, firstly don't send these as personal messages, post them publicly like everybody else. Secondly, if you're going bulk send PMs, at least try to make it look like you're addressing them directly - I'm not "Sir", I'm a woman (as you can see in my picture) and we're not on Battlestar Galactica, and I have a name (as you can see in my pseudonym).
5 hours ago PM from rohan: Hello Sir, How are you doing? I want a bit of guidance from you,since you have huge experience in Bioinformatics. I did my MS in Bioinformatics from NYU(2011),currently working at Columbia Med as Bioinformatics Analyst. I am looking to apply for another Masters program next year,but thinking of Data Science vs Computer Science.What will you recommend, considering the future of Bioinformatics? Keeping in mind Big Data, and how important Programming as well as Algorithms (from CS) and even deeper knowledge of Programming, which Science Course would sound better? In Data Science Programs, definitely there will be Algorithms course,as well as some Object oriented Programming in Java, along with Stats,machine Learning,Data mining etc,but would that be enough of Computer Science knowledge or CS degree with some data science courses would be beneficial? Let me know your thoughts on this.Since I want to have a good amount of Machine learning as well as CS background. Thanks, Rohan
