"More fundamentally, we are starting in the big bioinformatics set-ups to really push the limits of hardware and algorithms. A consultant came around and looked at our system and was shocked at the level we push our machines--when everything is up and running we cream through a year's worth of CPU cycles each day, and over that time track about 2 million unique processes. The consultant was gobsmacked. Each time we take it to the next level we discover something--the hardware, the network, the OS, the algorithm--scaling not quite right."

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.
