Program Description:

Bioinformatics is an emerging and rapidly growing field in science. It is
an interdisciplinary field at the intersection of biological science,

computational science and physical science. It is about developing and
using computational techniques for solving complex biological problems.
The main driving force of this new field in the past two decades has been
our rapidly increasing ability in probing cellular information out of
living organisms using the so-called high-throughput analytic techniques
of biological systems or omic techniques, covering genomic,
transcriptomic, proteomic, metabolomic among other omic techniques. The
availability of high-throughput biological data has made it possible to
model and realistically study very complex biological systems on
computers.
Applications of bioinformatic techniques currently cover a wide range of
topics in biological and biomedical research such as global environmental
issues, reusable biofuels, and cancer mechanism studies and early
detection.
