Life Science Informatics
Life Science Informatics as a research field is best rationalized as the unification of “classical“ bioinformatics, chemoinformatics, and medical informatics. This reflects the complexity and strong interdisciplinary character of modern research and development in the Life Science arena and the strong interplay between theoretical and experimental concepts. Current major research topics world-wide concern the integration of genomic models and algorithms, structural models and chemical properties, cellular function and biological network models into a system-oriented view.
Within these fields special approaches to data analysis and data mining as well as bio-ontologies and data models are used.
