Bioinformatics in Norway
This site provides an informal overview of information available
on the net about bioinformatics in Norway.
There is no clear definition of bioinformatics, it depends on who you
ask. A very wide definition would encompass any use of computers to analyse
data, while classic
bioinformatics deals with the analysis of nucleotide and amino acid sequences,
and prediction and modelling of protein or RNA structure. Modern bioinformatics
includes subjects like analysis of microarray data or simulation of complex
interactions between the molecules in a cell.
