"Since its founding almost 50 years ago, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, one of the world's premier research organizations, has been an institute without walls."

"Now for the first time the institute is laying out plans to create its own research complex, to be built on 281 acres of picturesque farmland in rural Loudoun County."

"Howard Hughes officials say the new research center will initially focus on the emerging field of computational biology, also known as bioinformatics, which taps the power of computers to interpret vast quantities of biological data from projects such as the mapping of the human genome.

"We think the next decade will see a massive explosion in this area," said Thomas R. Cech, the institute's president. "These are brand-new fields that have very few practitioners now, but everybody sees it as the wave of the future.""

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.
