A recent member VassiaAlk has posted numerous questions related to statistically analysis and software under these tags. Presently, their questions are on par with the tags but their questions aren't being well received. Out of the 13 questions asked, 5 are on hold.
I believe these tags are misleading. These tags suggest that questions on statistically analysis of data sets related to Biology are on topic for the site but the questions are being put on hold as off topic and the user is being advised to check out SO or cross validated.
Should these tags be removed to avoid confusion? If not, what is a question that would be on topic relating to data, biostatistics, and informatics? If there are questions that can utilize all these tags and be on topic, the tag wikis need to clear state this, and at present, data and biostatistics are empty. However, bioinformatics says:
Bioinformatics is a broad field that interfaces a variety of life science disciplines (biology, genetics, biochemistry, etc.) with a variety of quantitative sciences (mathematics, statistics, computer science, etc.). Bioinformatic techniques typically involve developing and applying software and algorithms to computationally intensive biological questions, such as those common in structural biology, genomics, sequence analysis, and systems biology.
Some scientists draw a distinction between the terms bioinformatics and computational biology. While these areas are indeed broad and diverse, the distinctions in terms is not consistent or well-defined.
I hope we can all see that these tags are very misleading since VassiaAlk questions cover the scope of stats, math, software, computational bio, etc, but they are being put on hold at a high rate.
