"IBM HAS announced plans to invest $100 million in its new life sciences unit, marking a major step in the company’s efforts to bridge the divide between biology and computational science.

“We see this as an important emerging growth market,” Caroline Kovac, vice president of IBM’s Life Science Solutions Software Group, said. “Over the next two and a half years we are going to put $100 million in business development in life sciences.”"

"IBM’s life science unit, which currently employs 40 people, will focus on four main areas: supercomputing, databases, knowledge management, and e-business for the life sciences. In 2000 at least, the unit expects to dedicate the lion’s share of its resources to bioinformatics."

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.
