HMS Beagle Human genome: Loss of interest?
[requires 'free' registration]
"The U.S. National Advisory Council for Human Genome Research is worried that the approaching completion of the draft genome, now forecast for early summer, is reducing researchers' enthusiasm for finishing the detailed sequence, scheduled for 2003. Their worries are fueled by a spate of new proposals for making use of the draft. Among them are projects to speed up investigations of gene function, such as sequencing the mouse genome, a cDNA library of mammalian genes, and additional bioinformatics methods and databases.

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.
