Contributions to APBioNET:
I have not worked with APBioNet before but I have the dedication to make bioinformatics and chemoinformatics accessible to everyone. In a small scale, I had been running coding and bioinformatics workshop in my own university and beyond for undergraduates who are interested.
Proposed future contributions to APBioNET:
If elected as ExCo, I intend to:
1. Develop more coding, bioinformatics and chemoinformatics courses to
promote their use within the scientific community
2. Build a strong network with other bioinformatics society to collaborate on
projects to benefit members
