  abstract =     "There is a cultural divide between computer scientists
                 and biologists that needs to be addressed. The two
                 disciplines used to be quite unrelated but many new
                 research areas have arisen from their synergy. We
                 selectively review two multi-disciplinary problems:
                 dealing with contamination in sequencing data
                 repositories and improving software using biology
                 inspired evolutionary computing. Through several
                 examples, we show that ideas from biology may result in
                 optimised code and provide surprising improvements that
                 overcome challenges in speed and quality trade-offs. On
                 the other hand, development of computational methods is
                 essential for maintaining contamination free databases.
                 Computer scientists and biologists must always be
                 sceptical of each others data, just as they would be of
                 their own.",
