Life sciences have undergone an immense transformation during the recent years, where advances in genomics, proteomics and other high-throughput techniques produce floods of raw data that need to be stored, analysed and interpreted in various ways. Biology and medicine have become information sciences and new areas of comparative biology have opened. Bioinformatics is crucial by providing tools to efficiently utilise these gold mines of data in order to better understand the roles of proteins and genes and to obtain ideas for new experiments. Therefore, bioinformatics has become increasingly important, supporting all branches of life sciences, with emphasis on biology and medicine, and also of industrial importance for development of new drugs, nutrition, agriculture, forestry and fishery.
