I currently work as a scientific technical writer and data analyst for a program involving EQA of clinical microbiology laboratories under our government's health department.
I am new to programming and data analysis since my previous background was in biochemistry and molecular biology for agricultural and environmental research. I have mostly done experiments via wet laboratory. Now, I want to pursue a path involving data analysis and informatics for biological, chemical, and health research.
I was trained (at the introductory level) to write scripts in C for basic bioinformatics during my undergrad. Now, I am learning Python programming for bioinformatics, statistical analysis, and data visualization by self-studying and asking questions in Stack Overflow.
