ZDNet The DNA puzzle is slowly coming together and Linux is making a difference
"The Linux operating system has helped scientists in Cambridge to decode the 34 million chemical 'letters' that constitute a human chomosome."

"Over three hundred Alpha-based Compaq TRU64 Unix systems as well as 60 Intel-powered Linux machines contributed to the huge number-crunching effort required to interpret the chemical make-up of a chromosome. The centre combined all the Linux machines into one giant 'virtual computer' in order to maximise their computational power. " [via]

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.
