looks great as a working definition ... anyone seen a better description? I should print this as a sticker on my cubicle ... I used to be just known as the IT guy in the last company ...
Computational biology = the study of biology using computational techniques. The goal is to learn new biology, knowledge about living sytems. It is about science.
Bioinformatics = the creation of tools (algorithms, databases) that solve problems. The goal is to build useful tools that work on biological data. It is about engineering.
