"Incyte Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: INCY), the world's leading provider of genomic information, announced today its full support for President Clinton's effort to protect the privacy of federal employees' genetic testing results.

"We believe the race to discover new genes and the underlying cause of disease is bringing a new era of creativity to drug discovery and health care," said Roy A. Whitfield, chief executive officer of Incyte. "For genomics to deliver on its promise of revolutionizing health care, consumers need to be certain that the information generated by these medical advances is not used in a discriminatory fashion."

Bioinformatics will be at the core of biology in the 21st century. In fields ranging from structural biology to genomics to biomedical imaging, ready access to data and analytical tools are fundamentally changing the way investigators in the life sciences conduct research and approach problems. Complex, computationally intensive biological problems are now being addressed and promise to significantly advance our understanding of biology and medicine. No biological discipline will be unaffected by these technological breakthroughs.
