Yahoo! Finance Motorola Invests in World's First Virtual Tissue Bank; Web-based Technology Will Facilitate Drug Discovery and Tissue Engineering
"Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT - news) announced today that it has made a strategic equity investment in TissueInformatics.Inc, a privately held, Pittsburgh-based bioinformatics company that is building the world's first Virtual Tissue Banks(TM)."

"TissueInformatics is developing Virtual Tissue Banks to facilitate drug discovery, tissue engineering and the scientific evaluation of human and plant tissues. These multi-dimensional databases will help researchers transform information into scientific knowledge by converting advanced microscopic images of tissue into quantitative analyses of tissue structure, function and genetic expression. Virtual Tissue Banks of normal and diseased tissues could eventually aid researchers in finding new treatments for diseases such as diabetes, breast cancer and Alzheimer's. Researchers at pharmaceutical, genomics and tissue engineering companies will gain proprietary access to these Web-based Virtual Tissue Banks via the Internet."

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.
