I'm considering a slight career change ... I'm a computer scientist. I like programming, I would like to contribute to some research/industry that might actually help people, like life science and medical science and I would also like to see more of the world (I currently live in Norway). So I thought a MSc/MRes course in bioinformatics in the UK sounds like the perfect solution. There are many universities in the UK that offer MSc/MRes bioinformatics courses: However, I also like Macs, so I would be happier if I found a Mac-friendly bioinformatics course. The course information sites rarely give any info on what system they use/support, but some mention UNIX. How do I know if they mean OSX or some other UNIX variant? Anyone in the UK who can give me a bit of advice on how to find more info on this?
