As is apparent from its name, the field of bioinformatics makes use of computers and technology, while studying biological processes. Information technology and computers are these days playing a great role in managing healthcare and the environment that we live in. It's through the channels of computing technologies that the biological processes are simulated and the data is analysed, thus improving our understanding about them. One of the biggest advances in scientific technology has been the decoding of the human genome. It is one big step that can be credited to bioinformatics and which has helped us in taking the first step towards understanding the mystery of life. As a growing field, it is likely to provide one of the best prospects in coming years.
