"Rocket science, drug discovery, and bioinformatics might seem like strange bedfellows at first glance, but there is more to the story than meets the eye. Over the past year, a number of firms that specialised in aerospace and defence have announced major new initiatives: applying their computational technologies to pharmaceutical and bioinformatics problems."

"Finding solutions to datamining and information extraction problems in defence and aerospace has been a commonplace activity at the company over the years. The work, involving massive non-linear multidimensional data sets, requires integration and fusion of data from a wide variety of disparate sources as well as techniques to handle the inevitable non-linear characteristics of the phenomena of interest. Many of the problems and bottlenecks currently encountered in bioinformatics and computational biology exhibit analogous multidimensional and non-linear traits."

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.
