What is Bioinformatics? Most biologists talk about "doing bioinformatics" when they use computers to store, retrieve, analyze or predict the composition or the structure of biomolecules. 'bioinformatics' is the processing of large amounts of biologically derived information. There has been a significant growth in molecular biological knowledge in recent years, especially in genomics, proteomics, and new information technologies. To process, store, visualize and analyze the large volume of data, it is necessary to develop specialized computational tools and techniques. Some computational techniques are also requiring in the derivation and retrieval of data. The greatest achievement of bioinformatics methods, the Human Genome Project, is currently being completed. The nature and priorities of bioinformatics research and applications are changing. This web portal walks you through the bioinformatics research areas, academic programs and the related activities at the University of Windsor.
Bioinformatics - an interdisciplinary program of computer science and molecular biology. It also requires understanding of the knowledge domains of biology, chemistry, mathematics, and probability and statistics.
