Bioinformatics

Bioinformatics is defined as the science of using computer technology to gather, store, analyze and merge biological data. Expertise in bioinformatics is key to handling the enormous amounts of data produced by the Human Genome Project and other sequencing projects, and serving it out to the researchers who use the data. Advances in computer research are as important as the biology for such large scale projects.
