Bioinformatics: perspectives for the future

Lda Fontour Costa, Bioinformatics: perspectives for the future, vol. 3. pp. 564-574, 2004.

I give here a very personal perspective of Bioinformatics and its future, starting by discussing the origin of the term (and area) of bioinformatics and proceeding by trying to foresee the development of related issues, including pattern recognition/data mining, the need to reintegrate biology, the potential of complex networks as a powerful and flexible framework for bioinformatics and the interplay between bio- and neuroinformatics. Human resource formation and market perspective are also addressed.
