I am actually quite happy that the jargon of genomics is still using
common dictionnary words. The downside of this is, as you said, that
unless we add "biological" in the description, there will not be
specific words in the descriptions.

For Lenny, we just removed the `[Biology]' tag that was heading the
short descriptions of the packages maintained by the Debian-Med
packaging team, and my gut feeling was that forcing additions of
"biological" in a field where space is limited was letting the
`[Biology]' tag come return by the backdoor.

The more we signal to non-biologists that the package is not for them,
the less we can tell biologists what it does. Couldn't we rely on
Debtags to indicate the field of the package to our users?

Have a nice day,
