  1. Hello everyone! I hope you all are well as you can be, considering everything 2020 has collectively thrown at us. I saw posts about computational biology/bioinformatics/systems biology programs for previous years but there is nothing posted for the 2021 cycle. I thought I'd be nice to get things started for this cycle - it was great read through previous posts for those interested in more computationally-inclined programs. It'd be nice to hear about everyone's thoughts on where they are applying to and to hear about news/updates/tips anyone has as well as we progress with application
  2. Dear all, I'm currently doing bioinformatics research in human genetics in a niche area (neuro-genetics). I have had a great opportunity to research on some threatening public-health topics with genomics as tool to address them. Now, I definitely come to a point where I enjoy doing what I'm doing, in and out intense amount of data cranking. It is all hunky-dory, however I'd like to progress my career for several reasons: a) I'd like to do something more b) I'm stuck in middle of the hierarchy with my current education degree c) circuitous immigration paperwork that adds more complexity to
  3. Hey everyone, I saw a 2019 post for computational biology/bioinformatics/systems biology, but nothing posted yet for the 2020 cycle. I thought I'd get it started for this year because it was nice to read through a thread from last year that was separate from the biology postings. I'm curious to hear where everyone is applying to, and any news/tips anyone has as well. And of course staying updated once results start rolling in after the application deadlines. Good luck to everyone!
  4. I’m interested in pursuing research in computational and systems biology (not really sure how much of each, and maybe structural biology would be nice too) and I’m somewhat restricted to staying in the NYC area. Right now I’m primarily considering Sloan Kettering and Columbia. Any thoughts on which one is better and/or more prestigious?
  5. I have completed BTech Biotechnology from Anna University, Chennai India in 2014 with a cgpa of 8.86, Department first, university rank holder. Have an above average academic record and IELTS score 8. Worked as an IT professional for five years. Now married, looking for masters in canada in Health Informatics or Bioinformatics. From the official websites of the top 20 universities of Canada, I can see I meet the basic eligibility criteria. But, recently one of the consultants I spoke with, told me that I have higher chances of being rejected either in the application phase or in the Visa phase
  6. this is for people like me who despise the toxic gradcafe forums and just want to know whether they should begin focusing their attn to programs they still have a shot at instead of being left hanging by programs that don't tell you about rejections/completed offers. No stats, no chancing - private message or start a new thread if you want to do that (:
  7. I have Bsc in Human Anatomy and would love to get masters in Bioinformatics. What are my chances? What do I need to know?
  8. I have Bsc in Human Anatomy. I am passionate about Bioinformatics and would love to get a masters. What are my chances? What do I need to know? Advice please?
  9. Got unofficial acceptance today. Join if you are on the same boat 🙂
  10. International student who lacks math/CS coursework looking at PhD bioinformatics programs. I have too many top tier programs in my list, and am looking for "safe schools" to add. However, given where I'm coming from, are any schools really "safe"? Also, any suggestions as to how I should proceed with my non-math/CS background are welcome. Thanks for the help! Undergrad Institution: International university, fairly average Major(s): Life sciences, biochemistry GPA: 3.5 Masters Institution: Top 5 private school, USA Major(s): Molecular biology GPA: 3.88 Type of

  12. Hello everybody! I am a Biochemistry major and was initially intending to double major in Computer Science, but due to some issues I will be 4 classes short of a Computer Science major to graduate on time, so I will graduate with a Biochemistry major and Computer Science minor. I have done synthetic organic chemistry for one year in my school, then I did biochemistry research (isolating a bacterial compound) during one summer in my school, and another summer I did biomedical research in another school (investigating immune responses to a gut bacteria secretion). I enjoy biomedical re
  13. Hey everyone, I've looked online and on this forum, but have found very little describing the experiences of the PhD program in Biomedical Informatics and Medical Education at University of Washington. Is there anyone that has applied to this program, how well known is it/are the faculty in this department, or any other details about the program as a whole? I have looked at the course curriculum, and am interested in many of the courses, but am worried that I won't get the core CS backing that I'd likely need to work in the field. I am a computer science major thus far, but have don
  14. Hi all. Hope everyone isn't pulling out there hair like I am. Background: working in industry(illumina), applied in home city to only one program, SDSU (bioinformatics) So I ended up getting a tour from a PI, and then an email back from said PI noting that the lab is interested in me. Unfortunately, its already April 18th, and I have yet to hear back from SDSU. So I have a couple questions... 1. Is it a good sign that the professor has asked me to join? Could that affect my acceptance in a positive way? 2. Anyone know the deadlines for SDSU? 3. I didn'

  16. Hi everyone, I am an international student. I completed my BS in pre-med in Boston and I am on the way to the MS in Bioinformatics. Since I did not take GRE, I only applied: Georgetown University, George Washington University, John Hopkins University, Northeastern University and Boston University. So far, I got accepted by Northeastern and JHU. I am still waiting for BU's offer. I do not know which school I should choose among BU, JHU and NEU. 1. John Hopkins University has better reputation, but I am kind of not willing to leave Boston because of my girlfriend. Of course, I am still

  20. Created this topic to continue the discussion here. I interviewed on Feb 24th and still have not received any updates. It seems like other people have tried contacting the office directly and haven't heard back yet. If you check the results for previous years it looks like it took people a long time to hear back then as well. Someone did get an acceptance March 30th 2015 but the interview may have been March 5-7.
  21. Hey all! Just thought we should start a thread for Comp Bio/Bioinformatics/Biomedical Informatics to track all of the programs and what's going on and stop us from hunting everywhere for news! =). I applied to 12 schools and the only one I have heard back from, so far, is Duke Computational Biology/Bioinformatics - interviews Feb 9-12 or Feb 19-20.
  22. Dear grad cafe, I've posted on the questions forum, but I had no luck there so I'm posting here again. This is my first post on this cafe and wanted to ask how good is university of maryland's computational biology, bioinformatics and genomics program compared to other schools in the US. I have been offered admission for their BISI's program and also got a dean's fellowship with my package, so the offer seems nice. One thing I forgot to mention on the questions forum was that this is the only school that I have been accepted to and wondering about the s
  23. Got accepted into UCLA (Bioinformatics Interdepartmental Ph.D. Program) and UNC (Bioinformatics and Computational Biology - BCB). Also to Baylor College of Medicine but will probably chose between the first two. Any opinions/recommendations?
  24. Hi guys, Received two offers from Yale (Computational biology and bioinformatics) and Penn (Genomics and computational biology), I'd like to do research in human genetics and complex diseases using computational/statistical methods. Still hesitated between these two programs, anybody familiar with the GCB program? Based on my knowledge, many professors under this program are doing wet-labs and professors doing interdisciplinary research are usually assistant prof. Could anyone give me any suggestion on the choice between these two programs? Thanks a lot!!!!
