"IBM, the world's largest computer-services company, said it will have 100 consultants by year's end to support expansion of its 7-month-old life-sciences division. The practice will focus on mining and sharing information, analyzing data, using the Internet in clinical trials and outsourcing services, said spokeswoman Theo Chisholm.

IBM, based in Armonk, N.Y., has committed as much as $200 million in the next three years to gain business from companies seeking to use the recently mapped human genome to find cures for diseases. The company wants to provide supercomputers, databases and advanced software to assess which combinations of genes cause diseases and to find the right mix of chemicals to fight them."

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.
