Frequently, bioinformatics is introduced to students as a set of tools, algorithms and platforms, enticing students with mathematical/technical interests and potentially leaving those behind whose primary interest lays in the soft sciences, such as biology, medicine or health care. Using bioinformatics tools and routines to solve biological questions entices students in this latter group to engage and to acquire bioinformatics principles "in passing".
