Program Introduction

Bioinformatics is a broad scientific research field that combines Biology, Computer Science, Data Science, Mathematics and Statistics to drive the analysis of the vast amount of data associated with modern Bioscience. It involves the scientific interpretation with the computational information and analysis of various factors which affects the movement in our biological systems. Computers and software tools are extensively used for observations of these databases and preserve them for further analyses.
