Bioinformatics aims at gaining a better and preferentially more quantitative molecular understanding of cellular processes by integrating and modelling high-throughput molecular data (omics data). This requires the use and development of state-of-the-art techniques for storing, retrieving, organizing, analysing and interpreting biological data.
