"Since Developing Bioinformatics Computer Skills first appeared on Amazon, I've received dozens of emails from computer professionals asking, "How do I retrain myself to get into bioinformatics?" Across the country, colleges and universities are asking a similar question: "How do we design a training program in bioinformatics?" Many computer professionals, however, are probably still asking themselves the more basic question: "What the heck is bioinformatics?"

In a research environment, where many biologists are still asking basic questions, such as "What's the best way to organize my data files on the computer?", and with a lot of computer professionals probably thinking about protein mainly as a component of lunch, "What is bioinformatics?" is a very valid question."

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.
