"It's called bioinformatics, which is the application of computer technology to bio-engineering. In particular, it is the use of computers to manage the massive streams of data emanating from the Human Genome Project. Bioinformatics appears to be important because it will enable us to more easily manage that data, sift through it for useful encoded gene segments and then develop new drugs and therapies.

But the real reason bioinformatics is important is because, as noted for the first time at an industry conference two years ago, it at last puts genetic engineering on the rocket sled of Moore's Law, which says computer chip performance will double every couple of years."

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.
