Bioinformatics is broadly defined as the use of computers to analyse biological information. The most common form of bioinformatics is studying the vast amounts of DNA and protein sequence that are now available. However, there are many other possible applications of computers in biology, such as simulating populations, analysing experimental gels and storing information about the phenotypes of mutant organisms.
Please submit your site to the most appropriate category. Submitting to an incorrect category may delay review of your site.
Please submit only websites that have English language content to this category and its subcategories. If your site is in a language other than English, please submit it to the appropriate category of World
For sites predominantly containing links to other sites of interest to researchers in the field of bioinformatics. Inclusion of unique content or reviews of the sites linked to is strongly encouraged.
Do not submit machine generated link sites. They will not be listed.

This category is for resources on the role of bioinformatics in education. It is not only about teaching bioinformatics per se, but also about the ways that advances in bioinformatics are changing the whole field of biology, and consequently the teaching and learning of all aspects of biology and life sciences, health sciences, agriculture, environmental sciences, and related fields.
For quicker placement in the directory please follow these Submission Tips:
Title: Name of Business or Organization
Description: This describes the website and should note distinguishing features found on the site.
For sites listing employment opportunities in the field of bioinformatics. General job site will not be listed and should be submitted to /Business/Employment/Job_Search/
Do not submit personal CV sites. They should be submitted to Science/Employment/Resumes/
Hardware customised or configured *specifically* for bioinformatics use.
This is for sites about hardware customised or configured *specifically* for bioinformatics use. This does not cover topics such as computing with DNA or neuron/microelectronic interfaces (unless you''re using them to solve problems in bioinformatics!).
With the explosion in the amount of DNA and protein sequence available, many organizations offer web-based access to programs which process this information in some way. This category entails the many different services that are open for use by private or public organizations for the purpose of biological computation or services (i.e. informative bioinformatics databases).
Please only submit sites which offer a service of value, and original.
If your organization offers many distinct services, please submit your main page to ''Bioinformatics'' or ''Bioinformatics: Directories and Portals''; you may then submit pages for individual services for consideration in ''Online Programs''.
For sites of individuals working in the Bioinformatics field. Sites should contain unique content and be either useful or entertaining. Please don't add sites that just list your CV.
No automated (RSS scraper) sites or blogs. Sites must contain original content of interest to other bioinformatics researchers. Your CV alone is unlikely to be of interest to anyone - that is unless you have won a Nobel prize.
Listing of companies offering Bioinformatics products or services.
Please keep the advertising to a minimum. Avoid unnecessary adjectives.
This category is for websites dealing with bioinformatics-themed books, magazines, journals, and other publications.
Dedicated bioinformatics journals required.
Homepages of academic research groups engaged in research in bioinformatics - using computers to process biological information.
Use this category for academic homepages which aren''t focussed mostly on a certain program or service. Please submit any services you offer separately.
This category is for sites about stand-alone computer programs which process biological information such as genetic sequences.
Please submit sites with or about specific downloadable, executable programs designed for bioinformatics operations to this category. Sites with libraries, objects, modules, APIs or other code of interest primarily to developers should go in Bioinformatics: Software: Software Development.
