Bioinformatics is a new discipline that addresses the need to manage and interpret the data that in the past decade was massively generated by genomic research.  ...  This discipline represents the convergence of genomics, biotechnology and information technology, and encompasses analysis and interpretation of data, modeling of biological phenomena, and development  ...  In other areas, where the method for solving a problem is still an open research question, there may be a number of competing tools, or there may be no tool that completely solves the problem.  ...
