The New York Times The Fly Frontiers of Genetics
[requires 'free' registration]
"The dung beetle was worshiped by the ancient Egyptians, and the honeybee has always had its admirers, but only one insect has a computer database, its own new CD-ROM and an international cult of 5,000 followers, each with a Ph.D."

"Even when roles have been assigned to all of the fly's presently predicted genes, Drosophilists will still be one major step away from the total definition of the fly. Imagine having a full list of parts for a Boeing 747 but not a single instruction for how to assemble them. Drosophila melanogaster has, perhaps, a fourth great gift of knowledge still concealed within its frail, miraculous body."

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.
