    • Bioinformatics – an Introduction
    • “ Bioinformatics addresses problems related to the storage, retrieval and analysis of information about biological structure, sequence and function. - National Institute of Health Definition
    • Bioinformatics deals with
      • Design and implementation of new algorithms and statistics which assess relationship among members of large data sets.
      • Analysis and interpretation of various data types, which includes nucleotide and amino acid sequences and structure of protein.
      • To develop computational tools and databases that enables efficient analysis, access and management of biologically significant information.
    • Bioinformatics and Human Genome Project
      • The Human Genome Project is a 13-year effort coordinated by the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Institutes of Health.
      • The project budget was 3 billion and it was completed three years before the proposed time due to the technological advancements in biological data storage, management and analysis.
