When CS crosses to biochem...

here. This is really good and shows, i think, what can happen when smart people good in one field cross over and start asking questions in another field. Almost always, the new information is interpreted wrt to their previous paradigm i.e. a coder thinks DNA is like a computer program. The analogies that these sorts of activities produce can lead to excellent research directions.
The problem in science is not coming up with the right answer, if you come up with the right question, the answer is obvious. Doing stuff like this increases your chances of asking an interesting question in both fields.
