  1. Cons: Some schools look negatively at people who quit graduate programs, like Basil said. Having to go through the entire application process again. Pros: It's better to realize that a PhD program is not for you early, then be miserable for the next 4-6 years. There's a lot of information on the internet about how quitting a graduate program is a kiss of death in terms of your application. And this might be true for the top PhD programs, but I also know people who have quit one program and still got accepted at another. It really depends on the applicant and the circumstance I think.
  2. Let us know how your progress towards applying to UPenn's Computational Biology Ph.D. program goes, Redsox!
  3. I posted the thread in the BMI forums since it pertains to that as well of Machine Learning, but I thought I might as well link that post in case people are interested in that article:
  4. Thought this was super interesting. This article talks about how biomedical informatics and machine learning is helping clinicians better diagnosis and treat schizophrenia. Here's an excerpt from the article: Full link: http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/883788

    Do Ph.D Programs accept MCAT scores

    I think it would be nice to start a list of all the Ph.D Programs that accept MCAT Scores. I started this below. Ph.D Programs that Accept MCAT Scores: Ohio State's Biomedical Informatics Ph.D. Program University of Iowa's Biomedical Sciences Program Standford University's Biomedical Informatics Ph.D. Program I will continue to add schools as I find them. Please post below if you know of a Ph.D. Program that accepts MCAT scores. Masters Programs that Accept MCAT Scores: Georgetown University Microbiology Wake Forest
  6. Nice response. I agree with this a lot. I would say that for people who are unsure of what exactly they want, a masters is a much better route. It gives you a good feeling of the academic side of things, while also allowing you to pursue internships and gain valuable skills that companies are interested in. Of course, everything is subjective, but I have seen this to be true for most cases.

    Deep Learning tutorial for beginners

    I think @Basil is putting together some Deep Learning tutorials.
  8. What do you guys think about obtaining your undergraduate degree and a graduate degree from the same programs? Is it heavily frowned upon or do you think that this idea is a bit outdated?
  9. Very cool. Ive never heard of RSEM before. What exactly does that help with understanding transcripts?
  10. For anybody here who is not in the Computer Science field, but something outside (Data, Biology, etc), and have used Machine Learning, how exactly did you implement it? What were you trying to achieve using Machine Learning? What programming languages or software did you incorporate?
  11. This thread is for everybody who will be applying during the 2018 application cycle, to Columbia University's Biomedical Informatics Ph.D. Program.
  12. This thread is for those who will be applying, or have already applied, to University of Cincinnati's Biomedical Informatics Ph.D. Program, for the 2018 school year.
  13. What are some Bioinformatics tools or software that you are currently using in your research or work?
  14. For those who are studying Biomedical Informatics, what are some tips you would give to people who are looking to get started? Any particular resources or advice you can send their way?
