The study of information derived from genetic material--predicting biological function of genes and proteins from their primary sequence (sometimes known as functional genomics), predicting structure of protein and DNA from its sequence, and understanding how and when genes are expressed. Also the development of computer databases and algorithms for the purpose of speeding up and enhancing biological research.
