PhD project description

One day before starting my enrollment as a PhD student I was called for a project meeting at Aarhus where I learnt what my project was going to be about:

“Design a good user interface for using the new grid technology and displaying the large amount of data in a simple manner. In addition, the platform should help users collaborate and hence help each other in the analysis of RNA sequences by allowing them to submit jobs to run on different machines and to divide the work among them.”

That was the description of what was going to be my next 3 years as a PhD student. On my first day of research I was asked to prepare a plan for my fieldwork studies. Fieldwork? What’s that???

Now, almost 3 years later, I am writing my dissertation about things that I never knew existed. This has been a fantastic experience!
