Bioinformatics is an emerging field of modern biology that solves biological problems with the help of computational approaches by utilizing mathematical and statistical techniques. There are many available 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.
