Professional, peer-reviewed papers in bioinformatics from the perspective of the recent Creation and the global Flood within a biblical framework

Bioinformatics on Answers Research Journal

With the discovery of the structure of DNA, biology was plunged into a new era. With the advent of DNA sequencing, biologists suddenly found themselves flooded with data. In fact, they often had more data than they could sort through manually. To help alleviate this problem, the field of bioinformatics was developed, which combined computer programs and biology. The bioinformatics programs were designed to make sense of the mounds of data that biologists could not have worked through on their own.

Bioinformatics is not mentioned in Scripture. This is hardly surprising, given that computers as we know them today did not exist when the Bible was written. However, the techniques and applications of bioinformatics are well within the confines of what Scripture permits and, as such, can be used to the glory of God.

In seeking to understand the world from a biblical perspective, the Answers Research Journal (ARJ) will publish papers in bioinformatics methods and their applications. While considering both biblical and non-biblical lines of evidence, we aim to discover the best ways to deal with bioinformatics questions and applications. These professional, peer-reviewed papers make the case for the historicity of Genesis and the accuracy of Scripture from the very first verse in the field of bioinformatics.
