About Bioinformatics

Bioinformatics is a multidisciplinary field of study that uses computational and informational tools to identify salient results from high-throughput data that are relevant to questions in basic and applied research. The specific applications of a degree in bioinformatics range from evolutionary relationships in organisms to the structural dynamics of cellular components to the analysis of clinical data. These applications draw from numerous constituent fields of study such as biochemistry, computer science, evolutionary biology, genetics, mathematics, and medicine.
