Hello,

Maybe it's the processing of biological data and the filtering of
information of these data - to get knowledge (perhaps).

I think bioinformatics is a wide field of science, remember all these
databases and programms. Is the protein folding problem and prediction 
bioinfotics, too? Yesss, I think so! On the other hand it's not everything
concerning computers and biology (writing a paper in MS-Word is not 
bioinfotis ;-) ...). Hm, I'm sorry, I've no short definition of bioinfotics
for you.


	still working on it,


	Arne
