This PhD Programme has broaden my understanding of this new field so-called Computational Biology and prepared me for the shift from a biological experimentally-based background into modelling, the approach I chose to pursue for my PhD project. Moreover, the fact of having been exposed to so many different approaches and so many different issues in Biology made me aware of the importance of working in an interdisciplinary group.
