Online Bioinformatics Quiz Questions

The term bioinformatics has been derived by combining biology and informatics. More precise definition of bioinformatics is application of information sciences (mathematics, Statistics and computer sciences) to understand and organize the information associated with biological molecules. Translation of billions of characters in DNA sequences that make the genome into biological meaningful information has given birth to a new field of science called bioinformatics. Bioinformatics, the use of computer is same as previously but the data is biological data, the letters of life. Read more>>
