Bioinformatics, a discipline that is attached to almost every field of life sciences due to its extravagance application. It is the application of computers to study, analyze and solve the biological problems. Although it has been explained here in a single sentence, bionformatics has got much more to it. The exponential growth of sequences with the help of sequencing technologies, has led to the dependancy on computers for data storage. Considering the costly experiments in wetlabs scientists conduct, a need is felt for automated methods that can reliably predict, compare and anlyse the data. Bioinformatics has the potential to accelerate the pace of scientific discovery considering the previously discussed need. There exists a huge contribution of this field in the current research of science as it deals with structural biology, molecular modelling, designing and simulation, data mining, machine learning techniques, databases, optimisation programs, statistical analysis, algorithms, etc. Spreading its wings over these many areas, bioinformatics is presently answering many biological problems, but not all.
