In the age of big data, there is a need for individuals who are skilled at finding meaningful patterns in the mountains of numbers. Professionals in the field of computational biology see more than numbers when interpreting data. They see the cure for cancer. They see drug resistance in disease-causing pathogens. They see the genetic changes associated with a disease.
They see answers.
