A good definition of Bioinformatics is at:http://www.bioplanet.com/whatis.htmlA loose definition is that it is the merging of information science with molecular biology (or Computational Biology with Molecular Biology), but instead of dealing with ones and zeros (as is the case with IS) you now dealing with A,G,C,T or U or the twenty amino acids. Basically, you are looking at patterns or alignments in sequence information as in the case of gene finding and function determination. Or predicting 3D structures as in protein or RNA sequences.Hope this helps,Silkyjae
