Bioinformatics is the process of applying computational and statistical techniques to interpret, annotate, distribute, and manage biological data.
Genomics offers new tools to understanding the underlying genetic alterations that lead to genomic instability and, ultimately, to developing better treatments for cancers.
Genomic sequencing gives infectious disease researchers the tools to examine a pathogen's genetic blueprint to identify and potentially prevent infectious disease outbreaks.
Understanding the interaction of microbial communities in healthy and disease states is giving biomedical researchers new clues about diseases, aging, and our interaction with the environment.
