Comparative Proteomics Kit I: Protein Profiler Module

Comparative Proteomics Kit I: Protein Profiler Module

Bioinformatics includes the collection, storage, analysis, interpretation, visualization, and presentation of biological data. The increasing speed and throughput of techniques such as DNA sequencing have resulted in an exponential increase in the amount of data being collected and analyzed. As bioinformatics has become an integral part of many areas of biological research, an understanding of bioinformatics basics has become an essential part of biology instruction. Many of the Biotechnology Explorer™ kits and series have bioinformatics components. Additionally, many can be used to create context for exploring different components of bioinformatics.
