The Bioinformatics, Genomics & Proteomics program at Williams College is about the use of mathematics, statistics and computer programming to solve biological problems. Problems that are addressed in bioinformatics include protein and nucleotide sequence alignments, protein structure prediction, evolution modeling, prediction of gene expression and prediction of protein-protein interactions. The study of bioinformatics has vastly increased the power of genomic and proteomic research.


Genomics is the study of organisms’ genomes and their expression. Genomics deals with how genes are organized within the genome, the management of DNA by the organism and modifications in the genome through evolution. Study in genomics has the potential of offering new therapies for treating many diseases.


The Natural complement to genomics, proteomics is the study of all of the proteins in an organism (proteome) and their interactions with their environment. The nature of proteins makes proteomics far more complex than genomics. Study in proteomics includes investigations in quantitation, structure (3-dimensional and sequence analysis), function, interactions, and modifications of proteins. In industry, protein separation and purification of proteins are also important aspects of proteomics.
