According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI),
"Bioinformatics is the field of science in which biology, computer science, and information technology merge into a single discipline. There are three important sub-disciplines within bioinformatics: the development of new algorithms and statistics with which to assess relationships among members of large data sets; the analysis and interpretation of various types of data including nucleotide and amino acid sequences, protein domains, and protein structures; and the development and implementation of tools that enable efficient access and management of different types of information."
MGEL is involved in all three of the sub-disciplines of bioinformatics mentioned above. Click on the links below to learn more about our bioinformatics endeavors.
