"Tim O'Reilly has always felt that one of the most important missions of O'Reilly books is to address "information pain." Information pain happens when people want to do something and they can't find the resources to help them. Bioinformatics, being an intersection point between two very different disciplines, is filled with information pain. Biologists are learning to program, programmers are struggling to understand genetics. We saw it as an opportunity to help both communities learn the critical skills of the other."

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.
