VB and C++ and its variants are among the first few programming languages developed for a human-machine interface. They are relatively easy to learn and quite versitle. It is fairly easy for non-professionals to write their own programs instead of having to learn complex languages.
Different people prefer different software. In research how can a researcher access another researchers’ data without having to purchase or download a new software which they may not be familiar with. Obviously, Open Source was the answer. This was started by a group of researchers known as OBF.
PERL is used in bioinformatics because of its ability to run on all operating platforms, is flexible to handle, modify, add modules easily in one simple language, and output in a format desired by the user.
Computer aided drug design abbreviated as CADD, uses different computational methods for simulation of different drug-receptor interactions. CADD has created a boom in the field of pharmacy and bioinformatics.
Neuroinfomatics is one of the key subgroups within the group of bioinformatics. As we all know, bioinformatics uses computing tools, math models and tools, and others to help biological research.
Bioinformatics is a new field of science which combines or melds biotechnology to information technology. It is a profession which pairs biology to computers. This is a rising field where one can match biology with computers, using the processing speeds of the computer and storage ability.
Have you heard of Bioinformatics? Bioinformatics is a science which deals with managing, analyzing and computerizing the biological data.
Can a human being be created by synthesizing chemicals, or by building artificial DNA, RNA, and genetic codes? Can human or animal organisms be created? If so, can they be made to interact in the same manner as they do in the natural forms?
More and more biology friendly languages are coming on the dock and SBML is one among them. SBML has become highly popular among those who pursue systems biology.
Developments in scientific knowledge have brought forth various techniques for treatment of ailments, including newer drugs and formulations for their treatment. This has led to a spurt in the number of people willing to learn science.
A wetware hacker is a name given to a person who uses live organisms, tissues, and combines them with informatics and technology.
We are all familiar with Linux and Red Hat software because we use them daily in our lives, having our computers either running on this platform or on other proprietary platforms. Bio Linux refers to the use of LINUX open software in bioinformatics.
Most people who are computer whizzes know what Perl is, and they can easily guess that Bio-Perl is nothing but using the programming language PERL in bioinformatics.
Thanks to the advances made by Biomedical scientists using informatics, millions of people who are having ailments that earlier were not treatable, or not having a quality of life after disablement, are finding their lives better, because of this new topic Biomedical informatics.
With the introduction of more and more of complex computers which now use the same kind of logic that humans use, that is non linear logic system, but one based on certain experiences in childhood and growing all the time, where lies in the future?
Biomedical Informatics deals with information (biological information) and its processing. Biomedical informatics provides a unique platform for the medi-care professionals to share with each other what they have learnt, or observed, and put it in a form which is immediately available to others.
Biomedical informatics deals with the interaction of biology, the medical fraternity, and the use of databases and computers for interlinking them in a manner as would help the medical fraternity to deliver the best possible treatment for ailments and diseases.
In our human bodies, and bodies of other living organisms, such as mammals, fish, trees, plants, biology plays a major role. There are still many unanswered questions and to know the reality about those hidden facts, scientists got inspired to employ computers.
Cybernetics as we learnt from previous articles and reading around is about communication, the means and the hows, and whys of communication. Biocybernetics concerns the communication protocols, if that word can be used, are used by the biological cells that exist in bodies.
As the title shows, it consists of two parts of “Bio” and “Informatics”. Bio stands for biology, and informatics, stands for information, and informational process techniques.
