Bioinformatics-a new discipline
Transcript of Bioinformatics-a new discipline
A new Discipline
an interdisciplinary field that develops and improves on methods for storing, retrieving, organizing and analyzing biological data.
Bioinformatics is referred as Practical Computer Science
(Bielefeld University, Germany)
Computer science has provided highly useful tools for collecting, exchanging and analyzing data
Modeling and simulation of Data
Finding the right data structure or algorithm can give answers to life science problems
Computer science’s computational paradigm has shaped new modes of inquiry in life sciences
Leonard Adleman, Professor of computer science and of molecular biology at the University of Southern California
Major Research Areas:
Computational evolutionary biology
Analysis of gene expression and regulation
Analysis of protein expression
Protein structure prediction
Network and systems biology
High-throughput data analysis
Computer Science teaches development of computational tools to acquire, store, organize, archive, analyze and visualize data
has argued that life can be equated with computation NA is both bricks and blueprint - an engineer's dream
One gram of DNA can store as much information as a trillion compact discs
Professor Donald KnuthStanford
Eminent computer scientist, Donald Knuth of Stanford University
has emphasized the importance of life science and its connectedness
with computer science.

The field of bioinformatics is scary for many people, because it is a multidisciplinary field.
Bioinformatics is a valuable discipline unless Universities encourage it, shortage of qualified people in the field will increase
William Gelbart, Harvard University
With our new ways of harvesting massive data, we have to figure out
what to do with them and how to learn from them.
Human Body as an
Information Processing Machine
Amino Acids (20)
DNA (3GB Space~3 billion Base Pairs)
And such other processes
Computation in Human Body
Life Science Vs Computer Science
a biology-based inter-disciplinary field of study that focuses on complex interactions within biological systems
