   - To join the Oncinfo Lab, you need to: \\ a) Be __organized and disciplined__,​ otherwise your efforts will be fruitless and lost even if you make important discoveries. Other lab members will enjoy working with you if your code is clean and you can clearly talk about your project. \\ b) __Work hard__, otherwise even a genius will not get to anywhere if they do not move. \\ c) Be __talented__. Nobody knows everything that is needed to do multidisciplinary research.You should be able to learn many things that you were not thought in courses.
