Bioinformatics- Is It a ‘Magical’ Research Field?!

Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field we all are aware of that. It has grown a lot since the last decade. It is often considered as an adjunctive field of biological research. That is also true because earlier this field was new and hadn’t been explored much. But nowadays, it is not the same anymore. Keep Reading

Bioinformatics is prediction- and simulation-based: Let’s rephrase the conversation!


Since the field of Bioinformatics has come into existence, general opinion has been that ‘Bioinformatics is all about predictions, experimental-based, and talking everything in the imagination’, or ‘the probabilistic outcomes must be approved in real world’ or ‘ the Bioinformatics results will have to be testified using the wet lab’. This indeed is true, all the predictions made by Bioinformatics drafted experiments, must be testified using the wet lab. We cannot ride on a long way just on the basis of predictions and assumptions. But what if this is just one side of the coin? We still need to flip over to see the other side of Bioinformatics.

Do we need more bioinformaticists or bioinformaticians?


As we all know the major difference between a bioinformaticist and a bioinformatician is that a bioinformaticist is an expert in developing software, tools, interfaces for effective use of these tools with a pure knowledge of their usage, on the other hand, a bioinformatician is a skilled person with knowledge of the application of these tools and software without a deeper understanding of their workflows.  Keep Reading
