Bioinformatics helps to process, analyze and interpret biological data and to automate analysis workflows, combining informatics tools and algorithms with a profound knowledge of the biological systems being analyzed. Modern biological research relies on large amounts of data. The human genome is coded by more than three billion “letters.” Data generated by proteome- and transcriptome-wide measurements of biological parameters under multiple conditions of disease or treatment even exceed this number.  Bioinformatics applications range from sequence analysis and the detection of patterns in large data sets, to the study of biological signaling or metabolic networks.
