This is great. I found the following bits that you might want to change.

Many greetings

Should we possibly avoid abbreviations?
locked nucleic acids (LNAs), peptide nucleic acids (PNAs)
and I admit that I'd feel like writing out DNA and RNA, too.

Well. If I'd have a veto then I'd use it here.  
field::biology:sequence-analysis would make perfect sense. Bioinformatics is 
more than that. Some (and possibly this includes me) would count everything 
that is tagged with field::biology as bioinformatics since otherwise is would 
not be in Debian. Anyway, bioinformatics is more then book-keeping. And if it 
is book-keeping then it is also the book-keeping of structures.
