Comment: C: what is the motivation of a person for being a cancer research bioinformatician?
... your ability to do something now and your intrinsic motivation/passion/desire do not need to be completely related. like you said, every job requiring such advanced knowledge/skills will have a learning curve. I think most cancer centers are looking for people who want to work on cancer for one re ...

There is also the major advantage of WGS being able to identify non-bacterial microbes, while 16S is limited to bacteria. Shoot me an email if y ...
