I am studying Developmental Biology, Mathematics and Computer Science. 

During my time doing this degree I have realised there is a great marriage between computational science and biology because we are at a point in time where we are shifting from computational power, to looking at harnessing the enormous amount of data we have, and we need systems to organise and make sense of that.

In my course, we are constantly doing really amazing stuff, such as dissections, and we have great resources. 

In my course you are in the lab taking things apart and really looking at them and understanding them on a level you can't get without the hands-on approach we have here at Monash.
