When I first started grad school, I was interested in signaling pathways. However, back in 1993, all people could do was to clone and sequence a single gene and study it, so there wasn't any way to actually study the pathway at a systems level. When I got my degree in 2000 and was looking for a postdoc, DNA microarrays became available and we could study whole genomes. So, I became involved in bioinformatics so that I could learn about how pathways in the cell worked at a whole system level. Kam D. Dahlquist 18:17, 31 August 2011 (EDT)
