"The moment genetic researchers have been waiting for is upon us: the publications of the human genome maps.

Some researchers say the complete human genome map may herald a revolution in medicine, giving physicians the material they need to predict, prevent and even treat disease.

But what significance the map truly holds is being challenged by at least one researcher who says both papers -- one published by a for-profit company and the other from an international, publicly funded consortium -- are next to useless."

"Behind new brick walls in Germantown, drills whir and saws whine as workers put finishing touches on a laboratory unlike any ever built. By the azure waters of San Francisco Bay rises the steel skeleton of a new university research center. Another is going up in Baltimore. A Toronto company lays plans to triple its laboratory space, backed by one of the biggest names in U.S. business.

Sensing the opportunity of a lifetime, top scientists around the world are preparing huge new laboratories, launching institutes, ordering massive computers and striking collaborations in order to tackle one of mankind's greatest challenges: understanding the human body down to the level of molecules."

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.
