Information Description

 With the knowledge-based economy (KBE) emerging as a new paradigm, it becomes important that economic actors acquire new knowledge and technology. This will stimulate innovation and contribute further growth and development. In the knowledge-based economy, it is not tangible capital but intangible and innovations that determine international competitiveness, productivity growth and worker’s status in the labour market. This intangible capital and innovation are supplied by knowledge-based society (KBS). The knowledge are acquired by society through research and innovation and disseminated through lifelong teaching and learning. After digital and ICT revolution comes biotechnology revolution which again change the way of life of society. With this revolution the knowledge from biotechnology and life sciences become the dominant component of KBS. With abundant of data generated by experiments using new automated equipment make bioinformatics a major tool to transform data into information and knowledge. This paper describes features of KBS and it role in KBE and how it is related to the roles of bioinformatics as a tool for generating knowledge in KBS. The paper also presents the current results of our research including the techniques for predicting protein structure and function and system for life sciences which is the basic knowledge for designing and applying new bio-products and organism.
