Hello brian ,

Having said that you are a pure information tech guy and have an experience 
of more than a decade, its not wise to take up any biological science 
degree/diploma to strengthen your biology knowledge. I think better way to 
enter bioinformatics is to look out some sites on the web (use google.com 
with keyword search - bioinformatics) and you will know what exactly is 
bioinformatics and the probable ways to fit in. See also faq about 
bioinformatics in bioinformatics.org.

you may use yadhu at mikro.biologie.tu-muenchen.de for personal contacts.

best regards
