Bioinformatics as a Hobby | The Synthetic Bestiary – Synthetic Biology, Genetic Engineering, and The Future | Virology and Bioinformatics from Virology.ca | Scoop.it

Bioinformatics is the study of data generated from biological experiments. With the advent of high-throughput sequencing and many other rapidly improving technologies Biologists are often producing far more data than they can properly analyze. With data being so easy to produce we have massive amounts of data, much of it publicly available – which could hold the keys to new medicines, cures, of breakthroughs. This data just needs someone to look through it. Using data mining software bioinformaticians look though data to find interesting patterns or to find answers to questions. But just like DIY Biology, bioinformatics isn’t restricted to professionals. Given that all you need to do bioinformatics is a computer and some spare time, anyone can do it.

One thing is to regulate one field of knowledgement. The other is lobbying against that field of knowledgement.
