What is bioinformatics?
Learn how bioinformatics can help us better understand our genes! From sequencing to bioinformatic analysis, we cover all of the basics!
Bioinformatics is a field that uses computers, software tools, and statistics to analyze large data sets of DNA sequence information, leading to a revolution in genomics and personalized medicine. This video describes how bioinformatic tools can be used to compare genes between species, analyze mutations in the cancer genome of a specific patient, and has been used to uncover interesting new biology such as the CRISPR system.
