HMS Beagle Celera previews genome data access terms
[requires 'free' registration]
"Celera Genomics says that within a few days it will make public the terms for getting access to its human genome data. The company says there will be no constraints on the way academic researchers can use it, except that the data may not be passed along to others. Celera will charge between $5,000 and $20,000 annually for the data, software, annotation, and use of its supercomputer. A consensus sequence will be available to nonsubscribers on Celera's Web site or DVD. Celera expects its strength to lie in its computing tools, not its raw data. The company's comments are a responseto last week's joint statement by Bill Clinton and Tony Blair urging the public release of all human genome data - and to the subsequent sharp decline in its stock price.

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.
