04/30/2012 -Discoveries in bioinformatics provide new therapeutic interventions to disease by replacing expensive, time-consuming physical experiments with an automated computational search. Public databases now contain experimentally determined sequence and structural information for hundreds of thousands of proteins allowing for rather comprehensive digital investigation. Computational software and hardware limitations are the restricting factor in obtaining deeper understanding of molecular function from this available data.Read more
