Abstract

Bioinformatics is often described as being in its infancy, but computers emerged as important tools in molecular biology during the early 1960s. A decade before DNA sequencing became feasible, computational biologists focused on the rapidly accumulating data from protein biochemistry. Without the benefits of super computers or computer networks, these scientists laid important conceptual and technical foundations for bioinformatics today.
