"Harvard University has received a $25 million gift from an alumnus to build a Center for Genomics Research, whose director says it will focus on "the last and most exciting frontier of human knowledge.""

"Other universities are also establishing genome centers. Murray said that what will make Harvard's different "is that the center will be mostly populated by [post-doctoral and more senior] fellows who we will recruit to come to spend five years with a research team. We're taking extremely seriously the notion of giving young people freedom" in scientific inquiry.

The center's resources will also be used to teach undergraduates about the science of genomics but also its social, ethical, and legal implications, Murray said. "This will enable people who aren't necessarily biology majors to go off and think seriously about these issues, which will play a bigger and bigger part in peoples' lives.""

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.
