What are Bioinformatics about?

The interdisciplinary scientific field of Bioinformatics deals with the development of methods and software tools for storing, retrieving, organizing and analyzing biological data. Bioinformatics combine computer science, statistics, mathematics and engineering to study biological data and processes.

What does developmental biology deal with?

The scientific field of developmental biology deals with how multicellular organisms grow and develop. Deriving from embryology today it examines the genetic control of growth, differentiation and specialisation of different cell types and organs.

Main model organisms in the plant field are thale cress (Arabidopsis thaliana), corn (Zea mays), snapdragon (Antirrhinum) and Petunia. Widely used animal models are Caenorhabditis elegans, fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster), zebrafish (Danio rerio), African clawed frog (Xenopus laevis), chick (Gallus gallus) and mouse (Mus musculus).
