Bioinformatics is an emerging field of science that is concerned with the management, analysis and visualization of the flood of data being generated in molecular and cellular biology, genomics and other areas of biology and biomedicine. Center for Integrated Bioinformatics focuses on a system approach to bioinformatics in which information at the gene, protein, cell, tissue, organ, and system level is integrated and interpreted for early detection, accurate diagnosis, and effective treatment of complex diseases such as cancer. The overall objective of the educational program is to train students in system approaches for the development of useful computational models of living systems and novel enabling informatics technologies in life sciences. See: Center for Integrated Bioinformatics at Drexel's School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems, 'What is Bioinformatics?' and Glossary of biotechnology terms to get some basic idea about this emerging field of technology.
