"Life science is the fastest-growing sector in the market for high-performance supercomputers already, and the real boom is yet to come. "DNA is digital information," says James Pierce, a professor at Philadelphia's University of the Sciences. "Life is an expression of information; that's why it's so beautifully adaptable to computers." The computer industry is adaptable, too. IBM is rushing to sell life-sciences companies everything from supercomputers to E-commerce tools, while the burgeoning market for biochips, tiny silicon wafers embedded with genetic material, has attracted high-tech powerhouses such as Motorola, Corning, and Agilent. In the new merger of infotech and biotech, biologists and drug companies will spur advances in computing power while computer geeks will play a pivotal role in the drive to treat disease."

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.
