I did my undergrad in cell/molec bio and computer science with a minor in chemistry. My undergrad was spent learning how to apply concepts from these three fields to one another culminating in a couple of capstone projects. My first capstone was a post translational modification prediction tool focused on enabling rapid prototyping and testing. My second capstone was a research presentation in my immunology course focused on a fungus that is capable of immune suppression and evasion and the unique sequencing challenges it posed.
I have worked in a chemistry lab on aptamer and miRNA design projects and have worked in automation for quality assurance specifically using selenium.
I found understanding the often overwhelming material in chem/cs/bio makes it easier to memorize and impress teachers on projects and exams.
