    What is it all about?

    The learning curve was steep for me when I started to learn computation. During my Ph.D., I was the only one on the floor who was learning bioinformatics. I took many detours, and I hope I can share my experience and tips to help you to avoid them.

    I will be balancing the technical part and general suggestions. This is not a book that will teach you deep in many of the topics that I will talk about, but will serve as a compass to guide your learning directions. Once you pass the initial steep learning slope, you will get into the full swing. You will be able to learn anything with determination and discipline!

    I want to help you to make the same transformation that I had!
