Bioinformaticians study biological questions by analyzing molecular data with various programs and tools. Today, bioinformatics is used in large number of fields such as microbial genome applications, biotechnology, waste cleanup, Gene therapy, fingerprint and eye detection. The field of bioinformatics, is one of the most prominent areas that our need is increasing, and the demand for it is increasing day by day. Where dealing with this vital and biological information using advanced computer technologies to generate useful information and new discoveries. For this reason, vital bioinformatics is one of the domains that combines both interested and programming at the same time. It provides you with resources for self-learning, the most important information in the field of vital information, and asked questions of those wishing to learn this field. The term bioinformatics was first used in 1968 by Margret Dayhoff, which is a pioneer in this field, but its definition appeared for the first time in 1978. This science arose and developed in conjunction with the emergence and development of computers. It is also referred to as "computational biology."
