"Eighteen months ago, Forrester Research in Cambridge, Mass., predicted that over the next 15 years, 3.3 million U.S. service industry jobs and $136 billion in wages will move offshore to low-wage countries like India, Russia, China and the Philippines. The IT industry would lead this exodus, the research firm said, losing 600,000 computer science jobs in the same period, or 108,991 by 2005.
But those estimates don't bother Matt Rasmussen. The 21-year-old is heading to graduate school at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge to continue his studies in computer science. He is a spring graduate of the University of Minnesota.
At MIT, his emphasis will be on computational biology, or solving experimental problems through the use of computers."
“Bioinformatics will be at the core of biology in the 21st century. In fields ranging from structural biology to genomics to biomedical imaging, ready access to data and analytical tools are fundamentally changing the way investigators in the life sciences conduct research and approach problems. Complex, computationally intensive biological problems are now being addressed and promise to significantly advance our understanding of biology and medicine. No biological discipline will be unaffected by these technological breakthroughs.”BIOINFORMATICS IN THE 21st CENTURY
