"Only a few brave biologists showed up today for a meeting designed to explore their common ground with mathematicians, physicists and chemists in the field of high-performance computing. The event was planned to look for "synergies across the areas," meeting organizer Julia Goodfellow told BioMedNet News, but biologists were still in the minority."

"Bioinformaticist Mark Swindells, one of the speakers, mused about "the challenge of how to do our talks so that everyone can understand the technology.""

"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."

"Recognizing the growing importance of computational and information sciences to biology, the National Institutes of Health is establishing a new Center for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (CBCB). The new center is designed to support research and training in areas that merge biology with computer sciences, engineering, mathematics, and physics.

"The future of the biological sciences will be driven by advances in bioinformatics and computational biology," says Marvin Cassman, director of the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS)."

"Knowledge gained from the sequencing of the human genome promises to change our lives. Powerful computing techniques have been used to acquire the knowledge gained so far, and still more powerful techniques will be required to fulfill the promises of genetically based drug design, medical diagnosis and treatment, and agricultural applications, among others. This issue of the IBM Systems Journal - and the companion issue of the IBM Journal of Research and Development - is devoted to papers on deep computing for life sciences. Included in this issue are papers that address associated biological, computational, and informational 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.
