Process mining techniques can be used to extract non-trivial process related knowledge and thus generate interesting insights from event logs. Similarly, bioinformatics aims at increasing the understanding of biological processes through the analysis of information associated with biological molecules. Techniques developed in both disciplines can benefit from one another, e.g., sequence analysis is a fundamental aspect in both process mining and bioinformatics. In this paper, we draw a parallel between bioinformatics and process mining. In particular, we present some initial success stories that demonstrate that the emerging process mining discipline can benefit from techniques developed for bioinformatics.
