Bioinformatics is a growing multidisciplinary field of science comprising biology,
computer science, and mathematics. It is the theoretical and computational arm of
modern biology. In other words, bioinformatics is a tool in the hands of biologists for
analyzing huge amount of biological data available on mainstream public databases.
Currently, bioinformatics has gained variety of applications in agriculture, medicine,
engineering, and natural science. This book discusses a small portion of these

The simplest and oldest non-contact way of estimating the temperature of a radiating body is by observing its colour. Table 8 .1 summarises the relationship between temperature and colour . Using this method, experienced practitioners can estimate temperatures over about 700 °C, with a precision sufficient for simpler heat-treatment processes . This is shown in a witty way in Figure 8.1, which is taken from Forsythe's paper (Forsythe, 1941) .
