National Animal Genome Research Program
Bioinformatics Coordination Program
Bioinformatics is the application of computer, statistics, and other field
of sciences to the management and dissemination of biological information,
especially genomics/genetics information. Bioinformatics is becomiong an
essential infrastructure supporting both researches and industries. As such,
the diverse needs of the current animal genomics research presents a huge
challenge to bioinformatics research, applications and tools developments.
The NRSP8 proposals in
provided strategic / directional outlines of such needs. In brief, the
challenges in bioinformatics support/research for animal genomics may involve
