Role of Bioinformation in Phycology.

The term "Phycology" is applied to morphology, taxonomy, anatomy and genetics of algae. A wealth of information on these materials has been accumulated in culture collections, and most of this information is accessible. Digitalization of data has reached a high level; however, information is still dispersed. Individual and coordinated approaches have been initiated to improve accessibility of phycological resource centers, their holdings and related information through the Internet. These approaches cover subjects such as standardization of data handling and data accessibility, and standardization and quality control of laboratory procedures. This article reviews some of the most important initiatives implemented so far, as well as the most recent achievements. It also discusses the possible improvements that could be achieved by adopting new communication standards and technologies, such as web service" in view of a deeper and more fruitful integration of biological resources information in the bioinformatics network environment. The internet, which is an information superhighway, has practically compressed the world into a cyber colony through Local Area Networks (LAN), Wide Area Networks (WAN), Metropolitan Area Networks (MAN) and other Intranets. The genealogists form part of this colony practicing bioinformatics, and sharing enormous databases. The development of the internet and the emergence of the World Wide Web as a common vehicle for communication and instantaneous access to databases are an exciting aspect today in bioinformatics. It helps ~s to collect, compile, analyze, process and represent the information in order to understand processes of life in healthy and diseased states and find new processes or better drugs and delivery systems for genes, drugs and other genetic components for life improvement and to educate oneself.
