Bioinformatics is the application of computer technology to the management of biological information. Computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information which can then be applied to gene-based drug discovery and development. Bioinformatics tools aid in the comparison of genetic and genomic data and more generally in the understanding of evolutionary aspects of molecular biology. At a more integrative level, it helps analyze and catalogue the biological pathways and networks that are an important part of systems biology. In structural biology, it aids in the simulation and modeling of DNA, RNA, and protein structures as well as molecular interactions.

Data mining (sometimes called data or knowledge discovery) is the process of analyzing data from different perspectives and summarizing it into useful information - information that can be used to increase revenue, cuts costs, or both. Data mining software is one of a number of analytical tools for analyzing data. It allows users to analyze data from many different dimensions or angles, categorize it, and summarize the relationships identified. Technically, data mining is the process of finding correlations or patterns among dozens of fields in large relational databases.

Epidemiology data represents the abundance of a particular pathogenic organism in a specific geographical region. Analysis of such data along with the impact of various important factors such as climatic and geographical factors, alteration of behavior of the pathogen and the host or the carrier of the pathogen is mandatory in such issues. Advanced computation and statistical means are the ways to analyze such important data and predict the future aspects of the disease epidemics.

Data mining impacted the present era of information retrieval system from a heap of data. Irrespective of the data, advanced mining techniques provide the essence of the datasets and extract the pattern of data. Next generation sequencing techniques generated a large pool of information from the genomes of several important organisms. Analysis of the genome data through mining has provided a tool to us for retrieval of the true meaning of the information and also to reduce the noise in the generated information.

*Unofficial 2015 Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2013 and 2014 with the number of times they are cited in 2015 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If 'X' is the total number of articles published in 2013 and 2014, and 'Y' is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2015 then, impact factor = Y/X
