[requires 'free' registration]
"The Wellcome Trust has told its grantees that they may not use Wellcome money to subscribe to the Celera Genomics human genome database. Since Wellcome helped provide funding for the public Human Genome Project, it wants researchers to use the free public databases. Celera says no problem; scientists can still access the free portion of the company's data. A Wellcome official says that the policy is just a way of getting value for its money, because there's no evidence that the private database is better than the public one.

"A new chapter in the storied and stormy relationship between the National Institutes of Health and Celera Genomics has apparently begun, as NIH officials are now negotiating with Celera for terms of access to its genome database, a NIH spokesman told GenomeWeb Friday."

"If NIH scientists do gain access to Celera's database - at the price of between $7,000 and $15,000 per head - they would effectively be paying for a souped-up version of their own Human Genome Project research published in GenBank, plus Celera's own sequencing research."

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.
