Hello, I am starting university this winter and I have a question for those of you who know a little bit about bioinformatics. My school allows me to take 3 minors (Math,Computer science,Software engineering) and turn them into an applied science Bachelor's degree. This allows me to skip a lot of the humanities and business courses I would otherwise be forced to take and lets me get a much deeper mathematical formation and more compsci credits than the regular formation. My minor in math has 5 required courses 1.Introduction to scientific programming 2.Calculus 1 3.Linear algebra 1 4.Probability 1 5.Statistics 1 After that, I have to pick 5 math courses to complete my minor. Should I go more into statistics&probability or more into discrete math(like graph theory and combinatorics)? Which would be more useful to someone who wants to become a bioinformatician. Also for the computer side....What should I really look out for? Should I take all the algorithm design and advanced data base courses or go into another aspect of computer science? Thanks!
