Bioinformatics is the process of applying
computational and statistical techniques to interpret, annotate, distribute,
and manage biological data.
Genomics offers new tools to understanding the
underlying genetic alterations that lead to genomic instability and,
ultimately, to developing better treatments for cancers.
Genomic sequencing gives infectious disease
researchers the tools to examine a pathogen's genetic blueprint to identify
and potentially prevent infectious disease outbreaks.
Understanding interactions of microbial communities
in healthy and disease states is giving biomedical researchers clues about
diseases, aging, and our interaction with the environment.
