Wired Shopping for Single Genes
"A genetic information company Thursday began offering a program that will allow researchers to access individual genes that were previously part of a prohibitively expensive database.

Using Incyte Genomics' LifeSeq Gene-by-Gene program, researchers outside large pharmaceutical companies can tap into the company's huge database and buy one gene at a time -- saving them the six months it typically takes to isolate genes in the lab."

"Researchers using the new program can purchase gene-sequence data, or have physical copies of gene clones shipped overnight, for between $5,000 and $20,000, depending on how much information Incyte has on the gene."

""This is just the first step in an even broader plan. [Incyte's] animal sequences, proteins, SNPs by the end of the year will all be online..."

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.
