Notice how 'bioinformatics' is couched in terms of only being molecular
biology - a common practice these days. Before being co-opted by
molecular biology, bioinformatics was well a well established concept in
biodiversity (although perhaps now all of biodiversity is presumed to
something that can simply be boiled down to molecules).
