Informatics

Science / Genetics / Informatics: The study of the application of computer and statistical techniques to the management of information. In genome projects, informatics includes the development of methods to search databases quickly, to analyze dna sequence information, and to predict protein sequence and structure from dna sequence data.

Bioinformatics
