Bioinformatics tools are frequently used in bioinformation discovery. A large number of such tools are currently available in the public domain for research in drug discovery. Here, we describe some of the commonly used tools. Many of these tools are often cited in this book. A brief description for each of these tools with their corresponding uniform resource locator address for availability is provided. It should be noted that this list is not complete and comprehensive. Hence, readers are encouraged to refer other information sources for bioinformatics tools and techniques. Bioinformatics tools described in this chapter are listed in alphabetical order below.
