Bioinformatics is an emerging modern biology to solve the biological problems with the help of computational approaches by utilizing mathematical and statistical techniques. There are many databases of protein and gene sequences. The protein sequence can be retrieved from UniProt and 3D structure prediction can be performed by utilizing homology modeling, threading and ab initio. The predicted structures can be evaluated by utilizing numerous model evaluation tools.

Keywords: Bioinformatics tools, Evolutionary biology, Homology modeling, Molecular docking, Sequence retrieval, Structural bioinformatics, Virtual screening.
