While the field of bioinformatics encompases a wide variety of computational, mathematical, and molecular technologies, the bioinformatics faculty in Biochemistry and Molecular & Cellular Biology have a particularly strong focus on protein and proteomics informatics, from the analysis of experimental mass-spectrometry evidence for proteins and protein isoforms to the integration and curation of large-scale data-warehouses of protein sequence and functional annotation.
