Bio- and Biomedical informatics

Bio- and Biomedical informatics research is an interdisciplinary field that develops methods and software tools for understanding biological and medical data. As an interdisciplinary field of science, it combines computer science, statistics, mathematics, and engineering to analyze and interpret biological, medical, and clinical data.
