Dear Mamoudou Hamadou,
Thanks for the answer. You highlighted important applications of bioinformatics analysis tools in the context of developing new drug research. Simulating the physicochemical and functional properties of molecules is useful for developing new drugs. The combination of bioinformatics and new information technologies ICT and Industry 4.0 generates new possibilities of using bioinformatic analysis tools in the context of the development of modern medical techniques. In the context of the deliberations on the development and application of bioinformatics, I formulated the following research question: To what extent have bioinformatic analysis tools been helpful in the development of SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) coronavirus vaccines? What do you think about it?
What is your opinion on this topic?

Through combining computer science, mathematics, physics, and biology, Bioinformatics helps us to analyze genome sequence data including human genome data to identify mishaps associated with diseases. It is useful in genomics to characterize and quantify genes, and also in Proteomics, Transcriptomics, Drug Discovery as well as Personalized Medicine.

Precision medicine relies heavily on developments in systems biology and omics disciplines, including metabolomics. Combination of metabolomics with sophisticated bioinformatics analysis and mathematical modeling has an extreme power to provide a metabolic snapshot of the patient over the course of disease and treatment or classifying patients into subpopulations and subgroups requiring individual medical treatment....

machine learning-based bioinformatics has been very useful in precision medicine. It can be used for signature-building (based on omics data or a combination of omics and clinical features) to stratify patients for prognosis, drug treatment, early disease detection etc. and biomarker discovery. In order to make machine learning accessible for medical researchers, we have developed a no-code auto-machine learning platform.

The human genome will have profound implications for biomedical and clinical research. Completion of the human genome and the use of bioinformatics tools means that we can look for genes that are directly related to different diseases and will help to better understand the molecular basis of these diseases. Such new knowledge of molecular mechanisms of disease will enable better treatment, care, and even preventive testing.
