I was really quite lucky to be put on the project that I was put on. After we got the RNA Seq data, I began spending more time reading papers and analyzing data, than at the benchtop. While I somewhat enjoyed doing the bench work, I realized that I loved planning for the experiments and analyzing data to make graphs. I still remember that first histogram that I made – that excitement that I had for the normal looking distribution!
I am very grateful for this opportunity to realize this aspect of myself!
