Biospace Celera and Human Genome Project Still Talking, Says Collins
"Collins was careful to emphasize that his excitement over nearing the end is "because I'm a physician." He predicted that within five to seven years, thanks both to the genomic sequence and information on genetic variations called SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms) "we will uncover all the genetic contributions of every common illness -- cardiovascular disease, asthma, Parkinson's, cancer, and stroke."

""Within 10 years, I believe we will be able to design individualized preventive medicine regimens based on one's susceptibility profile," said Collins. Such a profile will be derived from a chip "read-out" of an individual's own genomic sequence. "This will become a fairly standard part of mainstream medicine," Collins said. Within 15 years, Collins envisions "a full-flowering of gene-based drugs.""

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.
