The Times UK Gene chips are down in biotech patent battle
"It is a familiar British story. Ed Southern is an Oxford University professor, renowned for his work in developing tools for high-speed genetic analysis. Yet the lion's share of the commercial rewards of "gene chip" technology has gone not to Professor Southern or the university, but to Affymetrix, a Californian firm that is now one of the world's ten largest biotechnology companies.

Worse still, Professor Southern's faltering attempts to create his own business around his inventions risk being choked at birth by what he sees as corporate skullduggery. "

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.
