Any chance I can contact you through mail/skype/something else? I'd like to ask few questions about Sweden education as I'm thinking of getting Masters degree there. Thanks.

comment How do programmer-seeking employers see Bioinformatics degree?
That's why I'm thinking of taking bioinformatics. First - I'll have some degree, which is always good. Second - if I find bioinformatics interesting, I'll try sticking to it, maybe even seeking PhD. But lastly - if I don't like it, I want to make this degree as valuable as possible for my "web programmer" career.

Problem is, I can't really say at this point if I "like" bioinformatics, because I never tried that. All I know is that I like biology (on all levels), like statistics (sometimes I collect and analyze some data just for fun) and like programming. Also, I have 5 years of "generic" programming (web mostly) experience and during that time I found out that it's not what I'd like to do for the rest of my life.

What if I'm not a "junior" programmer? I have a full-time programming job experience of 5 years (without any diploma). Does that change anything for me? Basically I do not want to waste my time getting Informatics diploma because for me personally >50% classes will be worthless. That's why I'm thinking of something more interesting, like Bioinformatics.

Well, I guess I'll stick with Bioinformatics after all. As far as I understood, usually company simply needs a diploma having "info" in the degree name having good grades. However, bioinformatics feels better simply because it's something I can't learn by myself at home. While simple informatics is as easy as reading few books. Now to decide which answer to accept...

Thanks for great answer, did not understand one phrase though: If you want to make money you have probably should reconsider, do you mean that bioinformatics has not much money to offer?
