This PPT on BioInformatics provides an outline of the interesting area bioinformatics that plays a key role in the major research efforts in the field include sequence alignment, gene finding, genome assembly, protein structure alignment, protein structure prediction, prediction of gene expression and protein-protein interactions, and the modeling of evolution.
The contents of the report include an introduction, definitions, history, software, tools, program applications, projects, applications in various areas and case studies.
Bioinformatics is the use of mathematical, statistical and computational methods to analyze biological, biochemical, and biophysical data. Because bioinformatics is a young, rapidly evolving field, however, it also has a number of other credible definitions.
It can also be defined as the science and technology of learning, managing, and processing biological information. Bioinformatics is often focused on obtaining biologically oriented data, organizing this information into databases, developing methods to get useful information from such databases, and devising methods to integrate related data from disparate sources.
