I am a beginner level programmer preparing for the interview in medical research company. Job sounds damn interesting and I would like to get there. To show my skills and interest, I want to write a program related to the topic.
I think, statistical analysis is quite used in that field, isn't it? What would you suggest, as idea for demo program? Calculation of basic statistical parameters of input data?
UPDATE: @chl: my background: beginner Silverlight programmer, with basic (college) level of statistics; my intentions: small application, that shows I know Silverlight & I have interest in medical research
@onestop: company's area of activity: research in proteins, metabolics, central nervous system; job specification: I have just basic requirements, and there is Silverlight knowledge listed
