Bioinformatics As An Emerging Field Of Data Science

[Full Text]



Reena Hooda



Bioinformatics, Data Mining, Proteins, Genomes, Cell.



Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary approach that originated from the interactions of different streams under one umbrella incorporating mathematics, computer science, statistics, geography, physics, biology and machine learning etc. Observing body structure & building blocks of the different species say human, plants, animals, body cells development & reactions as well as communications of different parts of body offered gargantuan approach to this emerging research area. Besides this, the study of environmental change affects, the resistance power, DNA Sequencing, proteomics, genomes, reproduction, every living thing of ecosystem & their growth stages, bacterial infection etc. under bioinformatics opens up a new domain of data science in biological research. An analysis to gain more information about living organisms, their survival in certain circumstances or devastations using advanced computational tools further accelerate the research. With range of sub-topics and huge variety of biological data, it is quite difficult to handle things manually. Thanks to development & progress of computer science & information technology that aid in fast and accurate analysis of data moreover employ this data to learn, modify, act and project more accurate outcomes. Present paper highlights the innovation of bioinformatics, its applications and advantages and tries to answer the questions that why bioinformatics is going to be most interesting area of research.
