"The Human Genome Project (HGP) international consortium announced on Tuesday the official launch of the final phase of the human genome sequencing project, today's China Daily reported. "

"The first phase of HGP began in the United States in 1990 and will finish by mid-June and produce a working draft -- 90 per cent of human genome with an accuracy of 99.9 per cent.

HGP international consortium announced early this week that international collaboration is now being directed to the second phase to sequence the remaining DNA, fill the gaps in the sequence and increase the overall sequence accuracy to 99.99 per cent."

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.
