A day in the life of a bioinformatician

Dr Ang Davies interviewed two bioinformaticians and PhD student to ask them what a typical day was like for them and to hear their views on the impact of bioinformatics on the patient’s journey.

From these videos, provided by Manchester Centre for Genomic Medicine, you will get an understanding of what is both exciting and challenging in this area of work and also what we can learn from bioinformatics in research.
