Bioinformatics is a rapdily changing field of study. Researchers all around the world are trying to understand the human genome. Challenges that scientist encounter during analysis of human genes are extraoridinary. Genome is both very big (bilions of nucleotydes long) and very small (its weight is measured in picogram, that is trillionths of a gram). It makes it difficult to process data using computer software (not to mention human brain on its own) and very difficult to work on in the laboratory.
However machine learning algorithms are advancing quickly and laboratory equipment makes it constantly easier and cheaper to sequence DNA. So there is a lot of work to be done.
We are geeking about Big Data and Bioinformatics hence the name biodatageeks.
