Translational Bioinformatics: Past, Present, and Future.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Though a relatively young discipline, translational bioinformatics (TBI) has become a key component of biomedical research in the era of precision medicine. Development of high-throughput technologies and electronic health records has caused a paradigm shift in both healthcare and biomedical research. Novel tools and methods are required to convert increasingly voluminous datasets into information and actionable knowledge. This review provides a definition and contextualization of the term TBI, describes the discipline's brief history and past accomplishments, as well as current foci, and concludes with predictions of future directions in the field.
