"Last year, when Melissa Cline graduated from the Univeristy of California at Santa Cruz with a Ph.D. in computer science, she asked her adviser what she could do in bioinformatics, her chosen field of study. He responded by telling her about his visit to a university in Virgina where the faculty wanted to build up a large bioinformatics program. "They apparently wanted 20 or 25 people," Cline told me, beginning to chuckle. "And my adviser had to tell them that there probably weren't 25 qualified people in the whole country to staff such a program."

This scenario is typical in the growing field of bioinformatics -- also known as computational biology."

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.
