When considering the translational continuum between basic science and applications, biomedical informatics involves the use of both the computational theories and methods and information technology in order to generate meaningful solutions and results. The intersection points between component disciplines that comprise this translational spectrum incorporate “fuzzy” boundaries between disciplines, wherein interdisciplinary investigators engage in both research and application development that incorporate aspects of complementary theories and methods.
