Definition of Bioinformatics

Bioinformatics is a broad discipline that utilizes the concepts of biology as well as computer science. This field is concerned with obtaining, storing, examining, and propagating the biological data i.e. DNA, RNA, and sequences of amino acids. The functions of genes and proteins are determined by computer programs.


Moreover, the 3-D structure of the biological molecules is also predicted by the help of bioinformatics. The evolutionary relationships between different organisms can be determined by comparing the genes and sequences of proteins and this all is possible due to bioinformatics.
