Bioinformatics involves developing and using computer tools to collect and analyze data related to medicine and biology. It may involve the analysis of information stored in the genetic code or the analysis of experimental results derived from various sources such as patient data and published literature. Work in bioinformatics includes methods for data storage and analysis and may involve using sophisticated techniques to manage and search databases of gene sequences that contain many millions of entries. Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary aspect of BME and relies on the principles and practices of many areas including mathematics, statistics, biochemistry, physics, and computer science and informatics.
