This graduate student science blog is written for anyone to enjoy. This blog is not only about facts, nor is it only about current research. We hope that it will be much more than that. As we work on our own research, we hope to spare you the details and instead present you with principles that guide our research, the advancements that we have made, and the implications of our work. We also hope to introduce interesting new ideas in the field and to discuss the different sides of both new and ongoing debates. But most of all, we want to show you how we see the fields of genomics and bioinformatics growing to play an increasingly important role in our daily lives.
