Default Thanks to all of you for the help I've received over the last 2 years.

Hey all,

Today is my last day in a lab I joined two years ago as a research technician. I am moving on to medical school and hence will be ending my journey in genetics, at least from a research perspective, for a long time (possibly forever).

Of all of my various sources of information over the last two years, this forum has unquestionably been the driving force for me learning the field and being able to perform my job well. The atmosphere, quality of posters, and wealth of information here is incredible, and I am very happy I was able to find it relatively early.

Thanks to all of you who have helped guide me along the way, knowingly or unknowingly, and good luck to you in your future research endeavors.

Default How far?

Actually how far away from genetics do you think you will be moving from in med school (and thereafter)? Well, you'll see.

Joann is right; by the time you graduate, genome sequencing will be a routine diagnostic tool (well, at least as routine as a MRI).

Best of luck in med school!

You guys are right (I hope!). I meant I'll be saying goodbye from an academic research perspective, but I certainly hope (and expect) that the skills and knowledge I have picked up will translate in the coming years when physicians begin to have access to sequence data and are in a position to interpret it some degree. I very much look forward to that.

Thanks!
