Published by gbland
Bioinformatics is a growing field of study which supplies us with endless computing problems to solve. Although the definition of the term itself is somewhat arguable, the generally accepted idea is that bioinformatics is using computers to solve biological issues, or answer questions. One such problem is to develop an algorithm for comparing lengths of proteins in order to search for protein keys. A protein key is a protein which sends signals to other cells by means of a chemical reaction where the binding occurs. Our team has chosen to develop an algorithm for analysis of amino acid bond lengths of proteins because this analysis will assist in identifying protein keys.
