Student searching for Bioinformatics research ideas to explore

Hello everyone,

I am a Biomedical Informatics master's student.  I am currently searching for Bioinformatics research ideas to pursue.  I am interested in a variety of Bioinformatics topics.  Some of those topics are genome wide association studies, population genetics, sequence annotations, and integrating genetic data into EHRs.  What are some interesting types of research or novel research ideas that I can explore in Bioinformatics?  I appreciate your help!

Thanks,

Nate

please  look for 

please  look for  evolutionary analysis of antigens. it will give new insight how antigen has evolves

Thank you for the advice. I

Thank you for the advice. I will look into evolutionary analyses of antigens. Are you also currently studying that evolutionary information? What originally got you thinking about that type of evolutionary analysis?

Developing protein modelling 

Developing protein modelling  tools for larger proteins where much is to be done is my suggestion.

i have got this ideas as the

i have got this ideas as the immunesystem is devloped according to exposure of antigen so antigen must evolve earlier than immunity. and if it is not so it can give an insight into how same immunesystem evolved to resopond to different antigens

Nate,

Nate,

In case you are still looking for a suitable project, you could look into bioinformatics of methylomes or miRNAs. There is lot of unmapped territory there.

Cheers,
