- Information extraction in molecular biology. Blaschke, Christian; Hirschman, Lynette; Valencia, Alfonso // Briefings in Bioinformatics;Jun2002, Vol. 3 Issue 2, p154
Information extraction has become a very active field in bioinformatics recently and a number of interesting papers have been published. Most of the efforts have been concentrated on a few specific problems, such as the detection of protein--protein interactions and the analysis of DNA...
- A review of bioinformatics education in the UK. Counsell, Damian // Briefings in Bioinformatics;Mar2003, Vol. 4 Issue 1, p7
If the completion of the first draft of the human genome represents the coming of age of bioinformatics, then the emergence of bioinformatics as a university degree subject represents its establishment. In this paper bioinformatics as a subject for formal study is discussed, rather than as a...

- TIMELINE: The origins of bioinformatics. Hagen, Joel B. // Nature Reviews Genetics;Dec2000, Vol. 1 Issue 3, p231
Bioinformatics is often described as being in its infancy, but computers emerged as important tools in molecular biology during the early 1960s. A decade before DNA sequencing became feasible, computational biologists focused on the rapidly accumulating data from protein biochemistry. Without...
- Classification of Sarcomas Using Bioinformatics and Molecular Profiling. Dang, T. A.; Man, T. K. // Current Pharmaceutical Biotechnology;Apr2007, Vol. 8 Issue 2, p83
Recent advances in genomic and proteomic technologies have revolutionized our way of classifying cancers. These high-throughput technologies allow the use of powerful and multivariate bioinformatic approaches to develop molecular classifiers. These classifiers can then be used to distinguish...
- Reflections on the Origin, Meaning, and Future of Systems Biology. Santill�n, M. // Mathematical Modelling of Natural Phenomena;2008, Vol. 3 Issue 2, p98
The article provides information on the definition, origin and the future of molecular biology. It mentions that the field of science focuses on the forms of biological molecules and the ramifications and evolution of their forms to a higher level of organization. The author relates that he does...
