Bioinformatics is the use of IT in biotechnology for the data storage, data warehousing and analyzing the DNA sequences. In Bioinfomatics knowledge of many branches are required like biology, mathematics, computer science, laws of physics & chemistry, and of course sound knowledge of IT to analyze biotech data. Bioinformatics is not limited to the computing data, but in reality it can be used to solve many biological problems and find out how living things works.
It is the comprehensive application of mathematics (e.g., probability and statistics), science (e.g., biochemistry), and a core set of problem-solving methods (e.g., computer algorithms) to the understanding of living systems.
Bioinformatics is being used in following fields:
