(Australia-NewsWire.Com, August 31, 2017 ) In the field of Bioinformatics, biological data is interpreted through use and development of new software methods and tools. It is an interdisciplinary field comprising of subjects like computer science, mathematics, engineering and statistics so as to analyse the biological information acquired. Bioinformatics market comprises of all the biological studies which are done by using computer programming as the tool. Bioinformatics is primarily used for knowing candidate genes and single nucleotide polymorphisms.
Bioinformatics finds its application in many areas of biology. It assists in obtaining useful information from text and in gene ontology to name and organise data. In the field of genomics and genetics, it helps in sequencing genomes and noting their mutations. In the field of experimental molecular biology it finds its applications in the forms of techniques such as image and signal processing. It is helpful in interpreting evolutionary aspects of molecular biology by comparing the obtained genetic and genomic data. It also helps in analysing gene and protein expression and regulation.
