What is a Bioinformatician?

Bioinformatics is a young discipline. As such it will be defined by the
published work of those who choose to describe themselves as working in
this field. There are several graduate programs in bioinformatics that
include substantial dynamics, simulation, systems theory components.

Some of us have been working in bioinformatics and computational biology
for decades without ever having called it that.

You will live to see simulation and modeling become mainstream
biological tools.

Good luck.
