"We're in the process of being able to actually integrate what we call discovery science with hypothesis-driven science. And that integration of definitional discovery research with hypothesis-driven research is going to be the byword of biology -- what I call the "new biology" -- of the 21st century. We have three objectives. One is to do systems biology -- that is, looking at the big picture of biology and disease. Using proteomics and functional genomics, we want to change the way biology and disease are studied. We're building what will be one of the world's most sophisticated proteomics production lines and setting up a terrific computational infrastructure for all of these things. Two, we want to transform how biology is taught in schools -- we're going to transform it around this idea of biology as an informational science. And third, we are really interested in a commitment to educating society about science."

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.
