fact bioinformatics is a field having applications of Informatics (Information Technology) in biological sciences. It is becoming the most important and popular field after the starting of world’s heaviest and most costly project ‘Human Genome Project’.
The vast organisms present in nature and each having a different Genome, Proteome and a different way of interaction with the environment was difficult to accommodate by only human brain. So the field of BioInformatics was chosen to accommodate all by utilizing IT services for making different tools and techniques and also to develop databases that can have either information about one particular organism, species or system. Now a day, biological databases are the much heavier and by time they will grow much more according to the diversity of nature.
For all these purposes many agencies, either they are Pharmacist, Chemist, textile or any agency making use of natural treasures for human benefits, are starting projects and most rely on funding universities to complete their projects. New and advanced tools of BioInformatics are helping them to discover any problem in the genome of any organism to develop organism specific drugs, use of microorganisms for developing drug and immunity to changing environment and most importantly, how life started and how humans evolved.
