The discipline of obtaining information about genomic or protein sequence data. This may involve similarity searches of databases, comparing your unidentified sequence to the sequences in a database, or making predictions about the sequence based on current knowledge of similar sequences. Databases are frequently made publically available through the Internet, or locally at your institution.
Computational or algorithmic approaches to the analysis and integration of genomic, proteomic, or chemical data residing in databases. Bioinformatics includes applications for the analysis of DNA and protein sequence patterns and similarities, tools for t
Assembly of data from genomic analysis into accessible and usable forms.
