Bioinformatics is the application of computer technology to the management of biological information. Computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information which can then be applied to gene-based drug discovery and development. The need for bioinformatics capabilities has been precipitated by the explosion of publicly available genomic information resulting from the human genome project. The science of bioinformatics is essential to the use of genomic information in understanding human diseases and in the identification of new molecular targets for drug discovery. This book covers concepts, databases and tools of bioinformatics.
