The sequence of standard proteins, DNA, or RNA can be expressed as a string over a finite alphabet that represents well-studied monomers. It allows the development of many powerful algorithms and statistics.
Although sequence analysis constitutes an important panel of bioinformatics, sequences are only one of the many forms of experimental data that are available to the bioinformatician.
