I researched for the Bioinformatics program and it was available in this university only. So I opted for this university. And luckily my application was accepted by the admission department. I applied for this university through a common application form which was for $70.
From answering questions like where do we come from, how are different species related, to predicting which cancer drugs a patient is likely to respond to. This Bioinformatics curriculum provides the power of computing and big data to answer important questions. While studying it I am attaining the knowledge to learn about both biological interactions as well as computer science. Also, troubleshooting and answers to a large variety of biological questions are also being taught.
