Summary Introduction

Introduction:  Bioinformatics is a field of science which is developed to use computer hardware and software to analyze, store, visualize, and access genome sequence data. The other fields in which bioinformatics plays an important role are the comparative genomics, structural genomics, and pharmacogenomics.

Explanation of Solution

Reason for correct answer:

Bioinformatics is a field developed to analyze, store, visualize, and access genome data by using computer hardware and software. Bioinformatics also play an important role in the fields of comparative genomics, structural genomics, and pharmacogenomics.

Option e. is given as “none of these.”

Bioinformatics is used to store, visualize, and access genome sequence data as well as compare the genome of different species and determine three-dimensional protein structures. Hence, the correct answer is option e.

Reasons for incorrect answer:

Option a. is given as, “collecting and storing DNA sequence information produced by various genome sequencing projects.”

Bioinformatics is a field of science, which develops a link between biological data and technology. This hybrid science is used to store and visualize the data produced by various genome sequencing projects. Hence, option a. is incorrect.

Option b. is given as, “analyzing genome sequences to determine the location of genes...
