Bioinformatician, computer scientist - hands-on data
'A','C','G' and 'U' - are letters? True. Is it all? NO!
Hundreds to millions of these "letters" build up the area of work I most enjoy:
digging deep into the meaning, function, evolution and structural appearance of RNA sequences -
biological macro molecules that sit inside each and every cell of our - and all other's bodies.
Tiny stuff that controls almost everything..
This work is not just number/letter chrunching sometimes it collecting massive amounts of data to analyse
the evolution of RNA genes [e.g. 1, 17,
23, 24] and then it is finding the
Hairpins in a Haystack . On other days, I need to develop new
algorithms to adress a problem like the prediction of the evolution of paralogous genes .
