A little bit about myself.
Bachelor degree in Microbiology at Microbiology
Department, Science Faculty, KMUTT
Now. Master degree in Molecular Biology & Genetics at
Institute of Molecular Biology & Genetics, Mahidol
So we need to know how the information go from DNA
Which region is the coding sequence?
What is the remain in the DNA?
How does the protein work?
The important of Computer
in Biology Research
Human Genome Project (HGP)
What we got from HGP
Sequence of all genetic information.
Maps and Landmarks in Genome
Variation of genome
Next of HGP
Animal Model Study
Is an interdisciplinary ﬁeld that applies the techniques of
computer science, applied mathematics, and statistics
to address problems inspired by biology. Major ﬁelds in
biology that use computational techniques.
new biological study ﬁeld that focuses on the
systematic study of complex interactions in biological
Protein structure prediction and structural genomics
We have BIOTECH as a leader for Computational
The problem for biology
research from my experience.
No background knowledge of computer.
Don’t have the easy and free tools to use. (especially
Most of the free biology computer tools are in UNIX but
most biological scientist didn’t know what is UNIX until
Master degree!!! (Someone in Doctor Degree)
Most of biology science student didn’t study UNIX or
biology tool but the University let they study Pascal or
Dos and we don’t know how this program involve in
The science student in Thailand must learn some
bioinformatics or computational biology for research the
tools for biology research.
