What is this blog all about?
My name is Brian. In this blog, I plan on chronicling my foray into bioinformatics as a bench scientist. There are several reasons why I started this blog. The first is that I have been bashing my head and stumbling my way into the field for over a year now and I need an outlet. Second, besides my immediate mentors, I found that other bioinformatics blogs have helped me immensely throughout my learning experience. In order to give back to the community, I plan to contribute my own past and future experiences in hopes of helping other like minded biologists learn useful tools for making the best out of their data. Third, I think young scientists (like me) should get more practice writing. I was also inspired by James Somers‘ recent blog post about how everyone should write. If you have any thoughts or better bioinformatic solutions, please feel free to share. I always appreciate constructive feedback.
