Figure 12.1 is a simplified version of Figure 10.1 that highlights the principle objects of investigation of bioinformatics. The field could be said to have begun with individual gene (and hence protein) sequences; typical problems addressed were the extraction of phyologenies from comparing sequences of the same protein over a wide range of different species and the identification of a gene of unknown function by comparison with the knowledge base of sequences of known function, via the inferential route.
