comment Can paper/plastic currency serve as a medium for pathogens?
It's going to vary wildly, for example Hepatitis B can survive 7 days outside of a host. Furthermore, some bacteria such as Bacillus antracis can produce endospores and survive for years.

comment Is “computational biology” different from “bioinformatics”?
@KonradRudolph: Again the goal of my answer was not to give a concrete definition hence why I gave an additional note showing other people have varying opinions on what they are. The definitions are going to be very institute / lab specific depending on what their research topics and goals are.
