I am a PhD-holding bioinformatics scientist at a major cancer center in the United States. Being a frequent lurker of r/bioinformatics, I noticed the same career questions being asked over and over again. I tried my best to answer these questions when I can, but this process made me realize (after some Googling) that there wasn’t a centralized place to find information about all of the different aspects of a career in bioinformatics. I created the site to offer everything from career information to programming and data visualization tutorials. This site uses affiliate links.
