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 biological 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.
