Hi Biostars community! Recently I have planned to pursue a postgraduate study (MSc/phD) after my bioinformatics degree. I have been searching for my research area/topic that I might be interested but so far I do not have an obvious strong interest in any of them. So far I have a few ones in my mind: Cancer Biology/Cancer-related, Environmental Science or related area and Machine Learning/Deep Learning/AI (I realised this is a current trend in bioinformatics now. Correct me or expand my views on this if I'm wrong :'D)
As for Environmental Science, I wish I can help to solve environmental problems with my bioinformatics skills one day but so far I have no idea how bioinformatics can be linked with this area. If anyone know any research about environmental science with the application of bioinformatics, feel free to share and/or discuss below!.
I knew that bioinformatics has branched into many topics such as metagenomics, metabolomics, genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, evolutionary studies, functional genomics, RNA-seq analysis, data mining and now even machine learning, artificial intelligence are one of the interest in bioinformatics. May I know are there any topics/areas I should explore and discover? Feel free to share and discuss below :))
Since I have touched the topic about research areas/topics for bioinformatics. It will be great that if anyone would like to share the Current Trend of bioinformatics. I only knew applying Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in bioinformatics is a trend now.
Thank you in advance for all the comments and discussions below, really appreciate it. I hope this post can help others who would like to know the current trends and interesting topics that can be further explored! Thank you and have a great weekend! :))
