Interesting Fact:

Bioinformatics is the field of science in which biology, computer science, and information technology merge to form a single discipline. The ultimate goal of the field is to enable the discovery of new biological insights as well as to create a global perspective from which unifying principles in biology can be discerned.
Cells use the two-step process of transcription and translation to read each gene and produce the string of amino acids that makes up a protein.
