Crossing over

Two phrases dominate the label scientist use in bioinformatics. Couldn't the definitions people use for they "job descriptions" be labeled escapism?
  • Bioinformatician - A scientist with a background in biology or biochemistry who stopped generating data himself
  • Computational biologist - A computer scientist or physicist who happens to use biological data
Seriously - go to any conference, ask the participants for both their "label" and their background. I got 100% correct (sample size:2). Am I a biostatistician now?
