bioinformatics

the computer-based discipline that includes methods for storage, retrieval and analysis of biological data, such as RNA, DNA and PROTEIN sequences, structures and genetic interactions, by constructing electronic databases.

It is particularly relevant to GENOMICS, because of the need to manage the large amount of data generated by this research. Sometimes referred to as MOLECULAR BIOLOGY IN SILICO.
