The analysis and interpretation of the data are where the true heart of scientific discovery lies. How to best store, organize, and analyze the mountains of information is a top-of-mind concern for most biological scientists. A primary solution to these challenges comes from a key tenant of computer science: informatics. Bioinformatics has been likened to finding needles in data haystacks, however, these needles are often lifesaving and the data haystacks are often unimaginably large.
