Abstract

Within the last decade, bioinformatics has moved from command line scripts dedicated to single experiments towards production grade software integrated in experimental workflows providing a rich environment for biological investigation. Located at the interface between the scientists, their experiments, and the community, bioinformatics acts as a gateway to a wide source of information. This chapter does not list tools and methods, but rather hints at how bioinformatics can help in improving biological projects, all the way from their initial design to the dissemination of the results.
