Not sure how this is off-topic. It is a general question about the difference between biological concepts defined in the field of bioinformatics.
"Questions are from students, academics and active researchers in biology and closely related fields, including:
general questions about biological concepts
questions about the biological mechanisms behind medical conditions
questions about techniques in a biological or biochemical laboratory
Questions on interdisciplinary subjects like bioinformatics are also welcome, as long as they focus on the biological part of the subject."
