Bioinformatics is usually considered a data-driven area of computer science focused on the development and application of algorithms to answer fundamental questions in the life sciences. From the computer science perspective, Bioinformatics offers a tremendously challenging field to test computational methods typically associated with knowledge discovery. In this talk, after exploring the traditional view of Bioinformatics, I present an additional definition of bioinformatics as the study of information processing in biotic systems. This definition allows for a computational modelling of biological process which may led to more accurate biological models, which in turn can be used to improve or design algorithms.
