I am a postdoc researcher in computer science. I have a strong background in machine learning, and I am really fascinated by science in general. I would like to apply my knowledge to DNA related tasks, such as DNA sequencing/prediction, sequence assembly, or mutations/anomaly detection. So my question is: where do I have to start studying? Can I start directly with bioinformatics topics or do I need a strong genomics background? Can you suggest me resources of any kind (books, websites, etc.) to start learning this beautiful things?
Thank you very much!
