Chemoinformatics p0wned by cheminformatics...

Noel had a 40 people vote over chemoinformatics versus cheminformatics. What do you think?

I have thrown in two extra options: chemblaics (from my blog: chemblaics (pronounced chem-bla-ics) is the science that uses computers to address and possibly solve problems in the area of chemistry, biochemistry and related fields. The big difference between chemblaics and areas as chem(o)?informatics, chemometrics, computational chemistry, etc, is that chemblaics only uses open source software, making experimental results reproducable and validatable.) and bioinformatics (in case you believe all is life sciences now).


  1. Egon,

    I also saw this one a while back:

    c13s (in analogy to i18n, etc.)

    Definitely shorter than everything else.

  2. So, nature would vote for cheminformatics over chemoinformatics with an unmeasurable ratio :)
