Bioinformatics helps to store biological data in computers. The main problem of today’s scientist is how to collect, store, and retrieve information. This problem is solved with the help of bioinformatics. Bioinformatics technology uses computational tools provided by the Information technology revolution, such as statistical software, graphics simulation, algorithms and database management, for organizing, accessing, processing, and integrating data from different sources.
Bioinformatics has two branches:
  • The first is consists of data storing, gathering, accessing and visualization.
  • The second branch focuses on data analysis, data integration, and modeling.
