Where 0s and 1s meet biology to decipher the code of life
Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field that is concerned with developing and applying methods from computer science to biological problems. Bioinformatics is a subdiscipline of biology and computer science concerned with the acquisition, storage, analysis, and dissemination of biological data, most often DNA and amino acid sequences. Bioinformatics uses computer programs for a variety of applications, including determining gene and protein functions, establishing evolutionary relationships, and predicting the three-dimensional shapes of proteins.
