msnbc Robots speed up gene exploration
"Scientists have used robots to record the interactions between proteins in a single cell in a technical tour de force that will help researchers learn about the function of unknown genes"

Dr. Stanley Fields of the University of Washington in Seattle and the drug development company CuraGen Corporation of New Haven, Conn., have automated the process and used robots to test the simultaneous interactions of roughly a thousand molecules inside a yeast cell. In addition to determining what an unknown gene does, the research published in the science journal Nature will also help scientists figure out more about known genes."

"CuraGen (CRGN), a drug discovery and development company, said it expects it will take 24 months to identify the protein interactions for the human genome, once the sequence is publicly available."

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.
