Welcome to bioinformatics

“Biologists are drowning in data, bioinformatics teaching them to swim”

The phenomenal amount of biological data generated by sequencing the genomes of living organisms combined with the spectacular advances in computer processing capacity have led to bio-informatics.

Still a young science, bioinformatics a discipline that uses and develops software tools to extract, organize and analyze data from lifetime. Become indispensable for advancing research in medicine, biology, environment, or even in agriculture and fisheries, bioinformatics is destined for a bright future.
