Bioinformatics

Bioinformatics has emerged as a vital science in biological and health sciences. The technological advancements in genomics, proteomics, transcriptomics and metabolomics have opened many avenues to use Bioinformatics for biological data interpretation and analysis, specifically diagnostics, therapeutics and forensics.
