There are four terms to consider, all are computational

  • cheminformatics — Big data to explore relationship between small molecules (e.g. enumeration and machine learning stuff)
  • computational chemistry ("compchem") - thermodynamics-based methods to explore small molecules (e.g. docking)
  • bioinformatics — big data primarily for exploring -omics data (genomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics)
  • computational biochemistry - thermodynamics-based methods to study structure of protein
