At Adaptive Complexity, Michael White writes that the problem with some — and he emphasizes some — computational biologists is that they "aren't biologists at heart." He points to a PNAS paper from a group at Virginia Tech that also takes a jab at computational biologists. The paper discusses earlier computational studies of cell cycle progression and points out that "none of them compared their models to observed statistics of cell cycle properties in wild-type or mutant cells."
