The fact that I can contribute in a tiny way to the scientific breakthroughs that go on here. I am so passionate about science. Scientists are making important breakthroughs, finding things out about different diseases, like cancer. Sanger is still working on sequencing the COVID genomes and this helped with tracking variants during the pandemic. We also sequence animal genomes here which helps with conservation. It is all very important groundbreaking stuff!
Bioinformatics is quite a broad field. My team focuses more on software development, but it is all based on biology. We develop software that will help scientists track their experiments in the lab.
