Bioinformatics is a scientific field that combines biology and chemistry with math and computer science. By using bioinformatics, scientists can store, retrieve, analyze and interpret data from biological research within a computerized system. It's applied in fields like molecular medicine, veterinary science and genetic research.

In the future, medical professionals and biological scientists will use bioinformatics to transform massive amounts of raw data into an insightful understanding of the functions of genes, proteins and cells. It will lead to new developments in the diagnosis and treatment of disease, pharmaceutical breakthroughs, and improved quality of life.
