Happy Outfield Day

Just had a great day going to the site and collect samples. Will be going in mid-March again. Really really enjoy doing this =) Can totally imagine myself working in this field for the next 7 years.

Meanwhile, the congress is happening next week! Damn and those samples that requires DNA extraction just arrives from Norway today! Coupled with the samples I collected today, I guess I'll have to work really really hard + overtime this week. Oh well.... I have always told myself this : Not now, then when ?! Haha. YUPZ!! Hopefully can get to know the big shots from Rockefeller as well. Honestly if I can join Rockefeller/collaborate with Rockefeller for my PhD studies it's going to be glorious =)

Oh well I have been following the AGBT Conference in the States over the weekend (resting on weekends = lose out to others). Am certainly impressed with how they are using NGS to do some amazing things. One thing I notice is the importance of bioinfomatics in this age of molecular biology/biology in general. Nowadays if you want to publish papers with high impact factor, you need huge sets of data. Look at Nature/Cell/Science nowadays, how many papers/articles have less than 5 authors ? With the huge amount of data generated by your lab, how do you interpret/analyse them? Nowdays, sample size matters. It matters greatly especially in an age where next generation sequencing is becoming a basicity, no longer a luxury. Thus, bioinformatics, I hope we can be great friends :)
