Scope of bioinformatics ??
#11
This is post no. 11 under the main topic.
Bioinformatics is the application of computer technology to the management of biological information. It combines computer science with biology and genetics with a good-sized dollop of mathematics, statistics and other medical specialties thrown into the mix. Computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information which can then be applied to gene-based drug discovery and development. Bioinformatics is not just a useful tool in biological research or drug development. It is an indispensable ally of researchers. 
Without bioinformatics, new research in most fields of medicine and biology would come to a standstill. The explosion of publicly available genomic information resulting from the Human Genome Project has precipitated the need for bioinformatics capabilities. The enormous growth of biological data led to the development of several things. First, all these data need to be stored. The second requirement is the need for radical new methods for analyzing these huge databases. Thirdly, powerful hardware is required to carry out the task of analyzing these databases.

I think yes ...with the thorough knowledge of computer science we can apply it to Bioinformatics and can become good Bioinformatician. So Bioinformatics is the better field to opt.
