Bioinformatics Abbreviations


Bioinformatics refers to computer science researching biological data.

Bioinformatics also refers to branch of computer science that investigates, interprets and registers biological data, for example DNA or protein structures, for example by recording them in databases; science that applies insights from computer science to biological data.

One of the pioneers of bioinformatics is Jim Kent, a researcher at the University of Santa Cruz, a three-hour drive from Davis.
De Morgen, 2002

This is especially useful for studies that require enormous amounts of computer time and computing power, such as projects in bioinformatics, research on human genes or physics research.
ANP, 2001

Research is focused on bioinformatics and genomics, the science that explores human hereditary material.
NRC, 1995

A special domain is that of bioinformatics, which processes DNA and protein data into results that geneticists can interpret.
