Bioinformatics

Bioinformatics is the use of techniques from applied mathematics, informatics, statistics and computer science to solve biological problems. Major research efforts in the field include sequence alignment, gene finding, genome assembly, protein structure alignment, protein structure alignment prediction, prediction of gene expression and protein-protein interactions, and the modelling of evolution.
A common target in projects in bioinformatics is the use of mathematical tools to extract useful information from noisy data produced by high-throughput biological techniques. The bioinformatics’ tool most known among biologists is probably NCBI BLAST, an algorithm for searching large sequence (protein as well as DNA) databases.

In our work group we use many different kinds of bioinformatics tools to analyze the data produced by gelelectrophoresis and affinity chromatography techniques.
