Bioinformatics (Thesis) Master's Degree - About


Technological developments in recent years have brought a new perspective to life sciences and made biology a data-centered science. From this point of view, Bioinformatics has evolved from an interdisciplinary field and has become an important research and development discipline on its own. Bioinformatics aims to investigate especially molecular biological systems using informatics methods. Examining the enormous amounts of data obtained by new technologies sheds light on understanding the unknown aspects of life, improving the quality of life, finding remedies for important diseases, and drug design. Analyzing the large-scale data obtained and drawing conclusions is one of the most important and challenging tasks in the field of Bioinformatics. Therefore, Bioinformatics aims to better understand biological systems by researching and analyzing large-scale data produced by technology using computer methods.
