Bioinformatics combines these subjects in order to solve complex biological problems, usually at the molecular and genomic levels. The need for Bioinformatics has come from the masses of genomic information that has become widely available since the Human Genome Project.

There are several application areas for Bioinformatics, including:
  • Sequence Analysis
  • Protein Structure Prediction
  • Genome Annotation
  • Comparative Genomics
  • Drug Discovery
  • Analysis of Gene/Protein Expression
  • Analysis of Mutations in Cancer
