Genomic data refers to the genome and DNA data of an organism. They are used in bioinformatics for collecting, storing and processing the genomes of living things. Genomic data generally require a large amount of storage and purpose-built software to analyze.
Genomic data are primarily used in big data processing and analysis techniques. Such data are gathered by a bioinformatics system or a genomic data processing software. Typically, genomic data are processed through various data analysis and management techniques to find and analyze genome structures and other genomic parameters. Data sequencing analysis techniques and variation analysis are common processes performed on genomic data.
The aim of genomic data analysis is to determine the functions of specific genes.
