Biological Informatics 2020

“Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field that develops methods and software tools for understanding biological data, in particular when the data sets are large and complex. As an interdisciplinary field of science, bioinformatics combines biology, computer science, information engineering, mathematics and statistics to analyze and interpret the biological data.” [Reference via Wikipedia] Biological Informatics 2020 is a comprehensive listing of biological informatics resources currently available on the Internet. These resources span disciplines and are delivered by public, private and scholarly enterprises around the world. The links in this guide include a wealth and diversity of health informatics, neuroinformatics, biodiversity informatics and biomolecular informatics sources and sites.
