bioinformatics

[‚bī·ō‚in·fər′mad·iks]
(computer science)
The use of computers to study biological systems.

bioinformatics

(application)
The field of science concerning the application of computer science and information technology to biology; using computers to handle biological information, especially computational molecular biology.

bioinformatics

Using computers in biological research to analyze or predict the composition of molecules (nucleic acids, proteins, etc.) and model biologic systems. Bioinformatics is most prominent in the Human Genome Project, which has recorded the three billion chemical base pairs that make up the human DNA system. See biotechnology and Human Genome Project.
