I think a PhD in bioinformatics is unnecessary, though some might pipe up and say they derived enormous benefit from putting together a piecemeal thesis analyzing other peoples data. However, it seems in the field there are many fewer bioinformatics PI's, and fewer bioinformatics grants than one might expect, which is usually what a PhD program is geared towards. It really depends on your background and situation, do you need a Visa, etc...
