Bioinformatics is the use of computer technologies to collect, manage and use biological data to improve the quality of life of individuals. Bioinformatics is useful for the fields of agriculture, health, environment, energy, and biotechnology. Here it promotes biomedical research and developments, improves curative and preventive medicines, identifies waste cleaning bacteria, and produces high-yield and low-maintenance crops.
