Figure 2: Interplay of biological and computational approaches in cellular reprogramming. A) Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field that comprises both, biological and computational sciences. Using bioinformatics approaches, meaningful information from biological samples could be extracted using computational techniques to unravel useful biological knowledge. B) Bioinformatics approaches could be effectively applied to identify key instructive transcription factors and identify molecular mechanisms involved in cellular reprogramming when a cell undergoes conversion from cell type A to cell type B.
