"Humans did not acquire genes directly from bacteria as previously thought, American researchers said Wednesday."

Scientists working for the International Human Genome Sequencing Consortium, which sequenced the 3.1 billion letters of DNA that make up humans, found genes they thought had come directly from bacteria, although they did not understand the mechanism by which they had transferred.

But researchers at pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline's research center in Pennsylvania have debugged the theory."

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.
