• Bioinformatics is the application of tools of computation and analysis to the capture and interpretation of biological data
  • Bioinformatics is essential for management of data in modern biology and medicine
  • The bioinformatics toolbox includes computer software programs such as BLAST and Ensembl, which depend on the availability of the internet
  • Analysis of genome sequence data, particularly the analysis of the human genome project, is one of the main achievements of bioinformatics to date
  • Prospects in the field of bioinformatics include its future contribution to functional understanding of the human genome, leading to enhanced discovery of drug targets and individualised therapy
