"The Open Bioinformatics Foundation has incorporated as a not-for-profit company in Delaware in a move to sustain its growing administrative role, according to Chris Dagdigian of Blackstone Computing, who serves as the group's treasurer.

The foundation began several years ago with a core group of volunteers from various open-source bioinformatics projects, such as BioPerl, BioJava, BioPython, and BioCorba. As the projects grew, Dagdigian said, it became clear to the core group that a more formal structure would soon be necessary to support the increased responsibilities of the effort."

"Sun Microsystems, Inc. today announced that it will grant hardware, including servers and a secure storage system, to the Open Bioinformatics Foundation, which distributes, develops and supports standards-based open source tools for life science research and data integration. The foundation will use the hardware to update its infrastructure, enabling more reliable and secure distribution of its tools and collaborative services over the Web."

""The grant from Sun puts us at a milestone in our project's history. With Sun hardware at the heart of our third-generation infrastructure, our users will benefit from superior performance, data integrity and security," said Chris Dagdigian, systems manager and project administrator for the Open Bioinformatics Foundation. "This will allow us to meet the growing demand for open-source bioinformatics tools, and continue to build international support for the open standards approach to life sciences research."

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.
