Summary:

Whether you are a researcher who regularly relies upon bioinformatics, or you have no idea what “bioinformatics” is, the website of the authoritative-sounding Bioinformatics Organization will surely be a great resource for you. For the neophytes out there, the wiki page on the site provides a general introduction to, and answers general questions about, the field of bioinformatics. The pros, meanwhile, can take advantage of online analysis tools developed by the group such as PrimerX, a program to automate the design of mutagenic PCR primers. Additionally, the site includes online databases, forums, and a vast array of software development projects. Anybody can become a basic member of the organization for free (and at more than 34,000 members, the group seems to be doing something right).
