"The effective transfer of information across long distances is necessary for research groups that want to collaborate - and the Internet is making it possible. Researchers who share information and coordinate their investigations are forming "collaboratories" or virtual labs linked by computer networks. The trend is likely to progress with the development of better hardware, software, and legal agreements spelling out the ownership of data.

"The Web was invented so that scientists could use computer networks to collaborate -- that is, exchange documents, discuss them, coordinate work, create and publish collective knowledge. It was, in other words, supposed to be a groupware application.

Despite the popularity of the Web -- or, perhaps, because of that popularity -- it has yet to fulfill that original mission. Today's Web is more like a shotgun marriage of electronic publishing and broadcast television than it is like an engineered solution for group collaboration. True, the Internet empowers today's working scientist in ways only dreamed of even a decade ago. Yet our use of it often remains rooted in pre-Web idioms and habits -- partly because we don't fully exploit today's Internet communication tools, but mainly because we're still missing key tools and infrastructure."

"The goal of Internet groupware should be to reclaim the original vision of the Web as a medium of collaboration. It's no accident that vision arose in a scientific milieu since the enterprise of science is so deeply rooted in collaboration."

"The Theoretical Biophysics Group at the University of Illinois is proud to announce the initial public release of BioCoRE, a collaborative research environment. BioCoRE software is freely available for use at the Theoretical Biophysics Group website. BioCoRE development is supported by the NIH National Center for Research Resources.

Modern computational structural biology requires scientists to employ a wide range of tools and techniques to solve complex problems while keeping accurate and complete records of research activities. Additional complications are introduced by the need to effectively engage in interdisciplinary collaborations with geographically dispersed colleagues. The software BioCoRE, a collaborative research environment for molecular modeling and simulations, addresses these challenges."

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.
