Lab Automation and Bioinformatics

What is Bioinformatics?

Bioinformatics is the application of informatics technique s to obtain, store, and interpret large quantities of biological data. The term “Bioinformatics” was initially coined by Ben Hesper and Paulien Hogewen in 1970 and defined as “the study of informatics processes in biotic systems”. Bioinformatics finds application in different fields of biology, a few of which are enlisted below.
