Found inWork cat.: Bioinformatics, 1998 ("Bioinformatics is a new field of science that utilizes data from the biological sciences and many ancillary disciplines. A formal definition of bioinformatics has been given as 'the systematic development and application of computing systems and computational solution techniques analyzing data obtained by experiments, modeling, database search, and instrumentation regarding biological aspects.' We have broadened and extended this definition to include 'the delivery of the data and its synthesis to potential users.'")
Bioinformatics, museums, and society, 1998 ("Bioinformatics is an emerging field of science that integrates biological with geographical, climatological, health related, and economic databases to provide a framework for understanding biocomplexity within the context of significant societal issues. Bioinformatics is a systems approach that allows for retrospective analysis of past events, real-time analysis of complex contemporary data sets, and, ideally, positioning for an unpredictable future.")
