Utilisation of bioinformatics data

I am writing this post not as a guideline, but mainly for self-reference and hopefully a prompt for discussion. The boom of bioinformatics in recent years is coupled with cheaper technologies and consequently the surge of the amount of data available. The rapid development of the field itself is an anti-estblishment movement - even the most experienced bioinformaticians must spend a significant amount of time getting updated with the resources and toolkits.
