Dear Ma'am,

I am at the verge of accomplishment of M.S. (by research) Computational biology.

It is quite depressing to find that even after pursuing masters in bioinformatics / computational biology from IIT, we have to struggle for jobs in the field.

Most companies don't prefer to come for mass recruitment in the field of biotechnology/ bioinformatics. We are said to lie at the interface of life science and informatics, still companies generally prefer CS and IT students for jobs relevant to bioinformatics.

Can you guide me with some industries and companies recruiting in this field ?

Looking forward to your reply.

Thank you.
