Abstract


The trending of bioinformatics as an interdisciplinary branch of science in recent decades has enormous impact on biological research, as it enables in silico analysis of collected, archived and retrieved biological data1,2. The primary focus of bioinformatics during its nascent stage of development was just handling biological data, i.e. DNA, RNA and protein sequences through use of the basic computational tools. However, with increasing popularity of in situ and microarray gene expression and highthroughput gene sequencing studies involving massive data, it has immerged to play a bigger role in biological research output and applications3.
