Editorial: 21st International Conference on Bioinformatics (InCoB 2022)—accelerating innovation to meet biological challenges: the role of bioinformatics

Journal Excerpt: 

The advent of bioinformatics marked a significant paradigm shift in our approach to biological research (Rastogi, 2023). Coined in the 1970s by Dr. Paulien Hogeweg and Ben Hesper, the term initially encapsulated the study of informatic processes in biotic systems. Over the years, the focus of bioinformatics has shifted predominantly to data analysis, often neglecting the comprehensive understanding and computational reproduction of underlying biological processes. Today, bioinformatics stands at the forefront of addressing some of the most daunting challenges in life sciences, redefining our approach to healthcare and scientific research.
