Bioinformatics is a discipline that deals with the retrieval, storage, processing, management and analysis of organic information through computational techniques. Bioinformatics plays an important role in drug innovation and improvement. The involvement of bioinformatics in storing, retrieving, analyzing and forming biological information helps in efficiently managing enormous database associated with drug innovation and development.
The global bioinformatics market can be broadly segmented on the basis of applications, products and services, sectors and geographies. On the basis of products & services the bioinformatics market can be broadly bifurcated into bioinformatics platforms, bioinformatics knowledge management tools and bioinformatics services. The bioinformatics knowledge management tools segment can be further divided into specialized tools and generalized tools. The bioinformatics platforms are further sub-divided into sequence alignment platforms, sequence analysis platforms, structural & functional analysis platforms and sequence manipulation platforms. The bioinformatics services segment is again segmented into database & management, sequencing services and data analysis.
