Data Science and Computational biology is an interdisciplinary program that brings together the domain specific knowledge of science and engineering with relevant areas of computing and bioinformatics. Data science has the potential to revolutionise healthcare, and respond to the increasing volume and complexity in biomedical and bioinformatics data. From genomics to clinical records, from imaging to mobile health and personalised medicine, the data volume in biomedical research presents urgent challenges for computer science. This chapter elevates the researchers in what way data science play important role in Computational Biology such as Bio-molecular Computation, Computational Photonics, Medical Imaging, Scientific Computing, Structural Biology, Bioinformatics and Bio-Computing etc. Big data analytics of biological data bases, high performance computing in large sequence of genome database and Scientific Visualization are also discussed in this chapter.

1. Data Science

Day to day the amount of data produced across the world has been exponentially increasing and will continue to grow in the future. At companies across all industries, servers are overflowing with usage logs, message streams, transaction records, sensor data, business operations records and mobile device data. Effectively analyzing these huge collections of data, can create significant value for the world economy by enhancing productivity, increasing efficiency and delivering more value to consumers. Studies estimate that trillions of dollars of value in efficiency improvements and economic growth can be unlocked by extracting actionable knowledge from the deluge of data now being collected in almost every sector of the economy.
