Bioinformatics is mainly used for drug discovery in which various databases are used. These technological advances are likely to have profound impact on knowledge of etiology of complex diseases and new approaches of their prevention and treatment. Bioinformatics in drug discovery will have increasing amount and type of data to improve experimentation in pharmaceutical development. "Bioinformatics is the field of science in which biology, computer science, and information technology merges into a single discipline. There are three important sub-disciplines within bioinformatics: the development of new algorithms and statistics with which to assess relationships among members of large data sets; the analysis and interpretation of various types of data including nucleotide and amino acid sequences, protein domains, and protein structures; and the development and implementation of tools that enable efficient access and management of different types of information." In this article, we make the interested reader aware of the possibilities of feature selection, providing a basic taxonomy of feature selection techniques, and discussing their use, variety and potential in a number of both common as well as upcoming bioinformatics applications.
