Past decade has witnessed a paradigm shift in bioinformatics studies. From being theory-driven and rooted in biophysics and information theory, they largely became data-driven. The novel high-throughput methods produce data of unprecedented amount and nature, so computational methods became an integral part of molecular biology routine. Novel methods arise to deal with these data. We will overview several distinct topics related to structural biology and bioinformatics. In most cases the needs of the data analysis lead to development of novel original algorithms.
The selected topics include various subjects related to structural bioinformatics. They range from algorithm or database description to overview of complex studies, where bioinformatics plays an important role along with experimental techniques.
