Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field involving the use of computational tools on biological data. In the last few decades advents in the fields of genomics and molecular biology have massively expanded our ability to acquire biological information, and computational methods are necessary for analyzing these vast swaths of data. Computer science techniques have become increasingly vital to biological and medical research in this new era of fully mapped genomes, and bioinformatics is the bridge connecting these fields.
