The field of Biomedical informatics has been around for a long time. But with the great output of genetic and genomic data and the recent push to create electronic medical records, the world of bioinformatics is greatly expanding and gaining in popularity. In early March we attended the Joint Summit for Translational Bioinformatics and Clinical Research Informatics. At the show, I sat down with the conference chairs for each of these sides of the show to discuss this exciting and emerging field.
