Topic in Depth - Bioinformatics (9)

Computational molecular biology, which now is commonly called bioinformatics, draws on mathematics and computer science to inform research in biology. In this folder, you'll find informational and educational sites alike to explore the topic of bioinformatics.

This evolving area of research advances our knowledge of biological systems and contributes to medical research, but also raises ethical issues and demands increased collaboration among scientists.

Biocomputing in a Nutshell
This website, written by Ulf Reimer and Georg Fuellen and presented by the University of Bielefeld in Germany, offers a broad introduction to bioinformatics. Beginning with the development of modern molecular biology, and then discussing the huge amount of data and how to analyze it, the article concludes that an...

BIO2010: Transforming Undergraduate Education
This document provides the full text (26 pages in pdf) of a 2003 report from the National Research Council outlining some of the contributions of bioinformatics research and suggests ways to promote collaboration among the diverse disciplines within graduate and undergraduate programs. Recommendations from the report...

Open Bioinformatics Foundation
Researchers can share their open source code software on websites such as this one from the Open Bioinformatics Foundation. Here, visitors can find information about the Foundation's projects (including BioJava, BioPerl, and BioRuby), board of directors, applications for membership, and bioinformatics newsletters.

Bioinformatics Links Directory
Search this Web directory from the University of British Columbia to find everything from the genome of the SARS virus to basic guidelines and tools. The site is divided into eleven main topics: Computer Related, DNA, Education, Expression, Human Genome, Literature, Model Organisms, Other Molecules, Protein, RNA,...

European Bioinformatics Institute
Some interesting research projects are described on this website from the European Bioinformatics Institute. The site offers a number of data resources on topics such as genomes, macromolecular structures, protein families, and structure analysis. Taxonomy and ontology databases are also linked here, as well as...

Bioethics.net: The American Journal of Bioethics
Sponsored by the University of Pennsylvania's Center for Bioethics, this Website offers information and news related to bioethics (also called Medical Ethics) -- namely, the study of moral issues in the fields of medical treatment and research. In addition to providing a variety of continuously updated news stories on...

The Research Collaboratory for Structural Bioinformatics
The Research Collaboratory for Structural Bioinformatics (RCSB) is a non-profit group "dedicated to improving our understanding of the function of biological systems through the study of the 3-D structure of biological macromolecules." The goal of RCSB is to provide free public resources and publications to further...

The Biocomplexity Thesaurus
The National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII) and Cambridge Scientific Abstracts (CSA) recently launched the Biocomplexity Thesaurus -- "a major new resource for the bioinformatics community." The Biocomplexity Thesaurus integrates five existing CSA and NBII thesauri that cover the biological,...

Indiana University - Biocomplexity Institute
The biocomplexity institute at Indiana University is a collaborative effort among several academic departments. The institute is active in the areas of research, communication and outreach, software and resources, and training of scientists. This web site provides in-depth information on research projects, bioimaging,...
