Hi, For starters, I am an Electrical Engineering student and have very little formal training in the field of Biology. Also, I am not sure if this question is more suited for the Bio or CS section of the forum. My questions are: - How is Bioinformatics used to observe genetic mutations? Specifically, a hereditary disorder such as Cystic Fibrosis. - Is this currently the (or one of the) most effective way to examine a disease like CF? I would like to learn more about Bioinformatics and the day to day research. If you don't mind telling me about some of your experiences that would be great. Thanks!
