02 What bioinformatics software not to write part 2

10/3/2019
More
In this episode we identify areas of “Peak-bioinformatics”. There are a lot of existing bioinformatics software out there - more often than not the new tool you want to write already exists or a new tool cannot effectively improve. We discuss this in terms of metagenomics and anti microbial resistance. Question and comments? microbinfie@gmail.com SHOW NOTES Generally, novel software is not needed if: There are a plethora of existing tools The problem is more or less solved or its been shown...
