"Over the past 6 months we have characterized the normal gene expression profiles of more than 40 distinct human tissue types, representing over 30 million individual measurements in normal tissues alone," said Dr. Lennon. "This massive set of reference information is a core part of our GeneExpress(TM) database suite which also contains gene expression profiles of many important human diseases. Subscribers to our databases can compare normal with diseased tissues to identify the pathways involved in the onset and progression of diseases. The information can be used for all aspects of drug discovery and development, from target discovery to molecular profiling of drugs to design of clinical trials and, ultimately, disease management for individual patients."

"By the end of 2003, the databases are expected to contain complete profiles on 30,000 tissue samples representing approximately 3 billion gene expression data points."

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.
