Bioinformatics is a multidisciplinary field that includes the use of molecular biology, mathematics, computer science, mathematical modelling for the study of broad biological data sets. Bioinformatics helps to understand biomolecules at the molecular level using various visualisation tools, machine learning, evolutionary genetics, DNA sequencing, drug creation, precision medicine, data processing and interpretation. It is the emerging field of information technology and the artificial intelligence revolution in the country.
