While complete cure for age-old diseases like cancer, diabetes, HIV is yet to be discovered, there are instances of new types of diseases, equally deadly, making their foray into the medical field. This has forced the need to conduct continuous genome-based research to identify whether they hit people with particular genes or breeding on all types of living cells. This is why the field of bioinformatics has gained so much of prominence in this modern era. Actually, bioinformatics is a combination of molecular biology and computer science. People having knowledge of these subjects are called bioinformatics analysts. These analysts conduct research on genes and find appropriate cure for diseases humans are afflicted with.
A bioinformatics analyst position requires background in molecular biology and computer science. In addition, strong research, mathematical, and time management skills are also asked for. On the experience side, ability to develop applications that can collect and translate complex research data into reports.
To obtain a bioinformatics analyst position at “Humble Heart Foundation,” and contribute my knowledge of molecular biology and computer science in research for analyzing DNA and developing human diseases cure.
