A flood of data means that many of the challenges in biology are now challenges in computing. Bioinformatics, the application of computational techniques to analyse the information associated with biomolecules on a large-scale, has now firmly established itself as a discipline in molecular biology, and encompasses a wide range of subject areas from structural biology, genomics to gene expression studies. In this review we provide an introduction and overview of the current state of the field… Expand

The current excitement in bioinformatics-analysis of whole-genome expression data: how does it relate to protein structure and function?
Whole-genome expression profiles provide a rich new data-trove for bioinformatics. Initial analyses of the profiles have included clustering and cross-referencing to 'external' information on proteinExpand
From genes to protein structure and function: novel applications of computational approaches in the genomic era.
TLDR
Structural descriptors for protein functional sites are crucial for unlocking the secrets in both the sequence and structural-genomics projects. Expand
Analysis of the yeast transcriptome with structural and functional categories: characterizing highly expressed proteins.
TLDR
The most highly enriched functional categories in the transcriptome (based on the MIPS system) are energy production and protein synthesis, while categories such as transcription, transport and signaling are depleted. Expand
Proteomics to study genes and genomes
TLDR
Proteomics can be divided into three main areas: protein micro-characterization for large-scale identification of proteins and their post-translational modifications; ‘differential display’ proteomics for comparison of protein levels with potential application in a wide range of diseases; and studies of protein–protein interactions using techniques such as mass spectrometry or the yeast two-hybrid system.

Comparing genomes in terms of protein structure: surveys of a finite parts list.
TLDR
An overview of the emerging field of structural genomics is given, describing how genomes can be compared in terms of protein structure, and finding that microbial genomes have similar fractions of strands and helices even though they have significantly different amino acid composition. Expand
Protein function in the post-genomic era
Faced with the avalanche of genomic sequences and data on messenger RNA expression, biological scientists are confronting a frightening prospect: piles of information but only flakes of knowledge.Expand
A Sampling of the Yeast Proteome
TLDR
It is found that there is an enormous range of protein abundance and, for identified spots, a good correlation between protein abundance, mRNA abundance, and codon bias. Expand
Cluster analysis and display of genome-wide expression patterns.
TLDR
A system of cluster analysis for genome-wide expression data from DNA microarray hybridization is described that uses standard statistical algorithms to arrange genes according to similarity in pattern of gene expression, finding in the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae that clustering gene expression data groups together efficiently genes of known similar function.
