The Bioinformatics Student Perspective

Oksana Korol
Computer Science, 2009

Bioinformatics program at the University of Ottawa first appealed to me for its collaborative nature, which would ensure easy access to the knowledge and resources of both University of Ottawa and Carleton University. The fact that it is situated in the national capital – the center for bioinformatics and biomedical research was also a great advantage. Once I have started the program I was impressed by the resources and the support the University provides - from the cutting edge equipment to the very helpful and knowledgeable faculty.

With lectures from a variety of first-class researchers on the topic they are most passionate about, the Bioinformatics program has expanded my interests in ways I had not foreseen. There is a great atmosphere whereby everyone learns together, using each other's strengths. The range in backgrounds of students and profs exemplifies the highly multi-disciplinary aspect of the field.
