LA Times Rivals in Gene Mapping Seek to Tie Race
"The two sides in one of the fiercest competitions of modern science--the effort to crack the human genetic code--are quietly trying to negotiate a compromise that could let each declare victory. Intermediaries, fearful that the race between the publicly led Human Genome Project and upstart biotech firm Celera Genomics could taint science's public reputation for objectivity, are trying to broker a deal under which the rivals would simultaneously publish separate scientific articles about their findings as early as September.

If successful--and previous such efforts have failed--the arrangement could help defuse what has turned into a raucous struggle for scientific credit and commercial control of a body of knowledge that many believe will fundamentally alter science and medicine in the coming century."

SiliconValley.Com Researchers deny they're in a race to complete human genome map
"Leaders of two groups mapping the human genes said they are not in a race, but are trying to reach the same goal using different methods and the results will be "complementary.''

Asked about their competition, [Francis] Collins told reporters, "racing is the wrong metaphor. I wish you would stop using it.''"

"Venter hinted that Collins' group and his company may be in discussions about a joint announcement, but declined to be specific."

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.
