      My job involves physics but also biology. I’m a physicist and I do calculations on very large computers that mostly involve physics. However, I have frequently worked in genetics. We use similar techniques, large computers and maths, to dig in large amounts of genetics data. This can help us understand better the origin of certain diseases for example.
