Bioinformatics students should recognize their situation to their world. Today, we have a huge amount of publically available data that are yet to be analyzed. There is a big gap between the analyzed and well-understood data and the raw data. A bioinformatics researcher can play an important role in fixing this gap. They should consider the importance of their field and really focus on interdisciplinary education, to be effective both on the biomedical side and the computational side. On the other hand, I strongly recommend biology and medical students not to remain simple bioinformatics end users. I invite them to push themselves to learn more about the mathematics and computer science behind algorithms. On the other hand, I urge the informatics students to study the language and the methodology of biology and biomedicine. In conclusion, I invite them to pay attention to the biology.
