Hi,

I am studying an Open BSc degree with the Open University. The modules I am going to take will be about 66% Biological and 33% Computer Science.

I have a long term aim of doing a MSc in Bioinformatics, but not before I get some relevant work experience, even if it's a low paid entry level job.

Does any one know the best way to get work experience within Bioinformatics? I am interested in more computer based work rather than working in a wet lab.
My biggest anxiety is not getting relevant work experience.
Thanks.

You just need to apply and see what you get. You may want to check with unis you want to study at what you will need.

I'm of the opinion that if you're going to study something difficult like bioinformatics, you might swell study a biology or technology related degree that has more demand in the market. e.g. medicine or computer science. (and more)
