Bioinformatics is the careful application of computers and statistics to the field of biology. It includes things such as machine learning and computing at high rate of performance in order to help solve biological problems. Currently, computational biology has been able to make great strides in the medical industry, helping to map and analyze necessary DNA and protein sequences, build detailed models for artificial organs, and even validate and design pharmaceutical drugs.
While many innovations have already been established, many professionals believe that the future is just as bright. There are a number of further advancements to look forward to as technology continues to develop and our understanding of biology grows and adapts with the statistical information.
