Guardian Unlimited Genome project recruits the world
"Bioinformatics is the science of life as a software problem. An international co-operation called the Human Genome Project is about to finish putting the human DNA blueprint on the internet.

And a team working closely with them is about to distribute a software package that will turn the world of biology into a co-operative research laboratory. The exploration of the human software will become a kind of global interactive game, with a new tool called Ensembl."
Tools The Ensembl Project
"Ensembl provides complete and consistent annotation across the human genome. It will soon also process mouse, (in conjunction with other projects, hopefully people like the Jackson Lab). To understand how Ensembl fits into the human genome project, please read EnsemblHGP"

"A central element of the Ensembl project is openness: all data is freely available; all code is freely available. You can read about the EnsemblSoftwareDesign and about how to DownloadEnsembl software and data and how to go about InstallingEnsembl on your own site in our developers area. You can follow Ensembl announcements, user discussion or development issues via a number of mailing lists as well as view previous emails here."

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.
