I’m now at Princeton, attending Pea Aphid Genome Annotation Workshop I.
Actually I am neither a genomicist nor a bioinformatist. However, I’ve been engaged in aphid studies for many years using some molecular techniques, so that I am a bit interested in a genomics.
I am not good at dealing large amount of information like genomic informations, but I think these genomics studies largely help us to understand the complicated biology of many organisms.
To use genome information in a smart manner, the annotation of genes seems to be important.
