Unlike most bioinformatician candidates I have a bachelor degree in bioinformatics. The focus on bioinformatics from the beginning has provided me with a lot of practical experience. I have worked with people from almost all of the major fields of the natural sciences, at Odense University, Copenhagen University and Beijing Genomics Institute in Shenzhen. I believe I have a wide knowledge in molecular biology. I have experience with database and software development and analysis of huge datasets. I have knowledge of data structures, algorithms and their complexity.
