Welcome to Telethon Kids Bioinformatics

The nature of scientific research has changed dramatically over the last 2 decades, mainly due to the completion of the Human Genome Project and the Computing and Internet revolutions. Modern science often involves single experiments generating millions of results, which need to be analysed alongside the wealth of data held in public databases. With an ever increasing reliance on the computational analysis of research data, a new research field has arisen to fill the void - Bioinformatics. Bioinformatics is a cutting edge research field that uses computing technology, mathematics and statistics to answer research questions.
