Biological processes

The emphasis in bioinformatics has so far been on structures, in a wide sense of the word; (comparatively) easy to represent, store, analyse.


Biology = structures + processes

Biology deals with processes, but, so far, bioinformatics has not been able to formalize and handle biological processes nearly as successfully as biological structures.

To make biology computable, there is a need for a formalization of biological processes. Databases will be requried where the data models contain time is a fundamental coordinate.
