"The internet is usually seen as an online library, a place to surf the hours away and do your virtual shopping, not as the medium to pass around the world ground-breaking research that could help save mankind.

It hasn't quite happened yet, but just outside Cambridge there is a group of scientists who are quietly using the web to disseminate material about genes that should lead to greater knowledge about how human beings work, and why some of us develop diseases.

In a biological version of the Microsoft versus Linux battle over charging or making operating- system source code freely available, the Human Genome Project is challenging gene patentees by posting its research on the internet."

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.
