Bioinformatics is one of the newest emerging careers of scientific discipline, and it is gaining immense popularity owing to its multiple applications in various fields. It is a fusion of many areas such as computer science, mathematics, engineering, and statistics. These fields combine to examine and exemplify the biological data. It involves the analysis of various factors which affects the movement in our biological systems. Various kinds of technology are used in this analysis of data. Computers and software tools are extensively used for observations of these databases and preserve them for further analyses. Bioinformatics plays a very important role in biomedical research.
