"India's Tata Consultancy Services, the largest software company in Asia, launched its foray into bioinformatics on Monday by entering a research and development collaboration with a government lab."

""We hope to combine our strengths in machine learning and pattern recognition with their expertise in biology," M. Vidyasagar, executive vice president of advanced technology at TCS, said in an interview."

""TCS has always been exploring new areas on a continuous basis and has been pioneering research for over 20 years. As we go into multiple domains, intersection of biological sciences, life sciences and information technology poses interesting situations," S Ramadorai, CEO of TCS."

"It is estimated that the bioinformatics area will require 20,000 professionals within the next five years and the estimated trained professionals at the moment in the industry are just about 1,000."

"THE mood is one of caution as far as bioinformatics is concerned. The beginning of the year saw hype building up around the fledgling industry as the next big gold rush for India.

But six months after the first bioinformatics seminar in the country, with the IT industry's lesson on hype fresh in mind, things are moving at a more sedate pace."

"In India, bioinformatics training institutes have already begun to mushroom. Bangalore and Hyderabad have around five private training institutes between them. However, the industry is sceptical about the quality of manpower these centres can supply because most of them have short-term courses offering basic skills, says Dr. Sabharwal. In all fairness to them she adds, "We need to wait for a few months to see the outcome of it all.""

"The Internet could turnout to become the equaliser in the brave new world of research into human genetics - up to a point.

Following a fierce dispute, the data on the reading of the human genetic code has been published on the Internet to make it accessible to scientists anywhere. The result has been a flood of research projects in the developing world into data that would otherwise not have been accessible."

"During the past couple of months, the public genome databases have ben used by scientists 160,000 times in India, 61,000 times in Mexico and about 50,000 times each in China and in Brazil. The data is being accessed daily by about 10,000 organisations around the world."

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.
