BBC News Gene firm labelled a 'con job'
"Dr John Sulston, director of the Sanger Centre, Britain's leading gene-sequencing lab, has attacked the American company Celera Genomics and its director Dr Craig Venter over their intention to make money selling a combination of public and private DNA data."

"Dr Sulston said that Celera "hoover up all the public data, add a bit of their own and sell it as a packaged product. It is fair enough if people want to buy it. That's up to them."

But he added that the Celera data is something of a "con job," saying that they are "pretending to do something they are not." "

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.
