"Lisp, the second oldest programming language in common use, remains the principal language of knowledge representation, knowledge-based programming, and automated reasoning. Unlike Perl, the current language of choice among many bioinformaticians, Lisp is one of the few programming languages robust and powerful enough to manage the complex systems modeling, knowledge-based annotation, and automated scientific reasoning needed to take bioinformatics to the next level.

Larry Hunter, Director of the Center for Computational Pharmacology and a member of's Steering Committee, says that although there are many competing programming environments for bioinformaticians, Lisp provides some powerful advantages."

" is a public resource supporting scientists who use Lisp to develop intelligent applications in the biological sciences. We collect and disseminate Lisp biocomputing code, and gather pointers to Lisp and other Intelligent BioComputing methods. Please contribute, or make suggestions by writing the editor."

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.
