"The gene machines at the Sanger Centre near Cambridge, responsible for mapping a third of the human genome, are still whirring night and day.

Never mind that a working draft of the 3.1 billion letters in the "book of life" was completed on June 26. That is just the start of a coming tidal wave of genetic information.

Managing and interpreting the trillions of bits of data, or terabytes, generated by the genomics revolution is now the biggest task facing biologists -- and a major business opportunity for computer companies."

"IBM is pushing hard against the boundaries of data processing andintegration in a way that ultimately could affect everyone'shealth and well-being.

Through a technology license with Incyte Genomics Inc., IBM is applying its DiscoveryLink technology to the challenge of sifting mountains of genetic data to better identify the causes of diseases and aid in developing cures. DiscoveryLink's data- integration technology will be integrated with Incyte's Genomic Knowledge Platform."

"IBM says it has earmarked $100 million to develop advanced research technology for biotechnology, genomic, E-health, pharmaceutical, and agri-science industries."

"Compaq Computer said it plans to invest $100 million in early-stage companies that focus on genomics, tapping into a growing market of biotech start-ups involved in gene discovery, analysis, and information.

The company said its goal is to help promote development of biotech companies through a combination of financial support and access to its AlphaServers and StorageWork computing systems for use in gene sequencing, gene discovery, and other related activities.

Compaq said it would make its first investment in the Applied Genomics Technology Capital Fund, a Cambridge, Mass.-based venture capital fund that invests in companies specializing in genomics and bioinformatics, a new field that develops systems for analyzing, processing, and storing genetic information."

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.
