Bioinformatics prospects after masters


Recommended Posts

I have 3 acceptances as of now. How is the bioinformatics industry in following cities: Atlanta, Boston, Ann arbor, Seattle & New York ? After a Masters degree. This will greatly help in making a decision in choosing a university before the deadline of 15th April.

Biotech in general is a huge industry in Boston. I believe it's also pretty good in NYC. I think Atlanta is okay, if for no other reason than the CDC being there. Ann Arbor is a pretty small place, and the major cities in Michigan aren't doing that well. Seattle's probably no better than any other major city. There's definitely some biotech there, but I think it's more of an IT/engineering city.

All this said, just because you get your masters in one place doesn't mean you have to or even should stay there.

I'm not sure to what percentage do biotech industry involves bioinformatics. However, Boston has the biggest biotech industry in the country, followed by San Diego, and then San Francisco / Bay Area. My understanding on biotech industry, however, involves less bioinformatics compare to other bio-related disciplines, such as protein (bio)chemistry, molecular biology, structural biology, etc.
