"When IBM's new and well-funded life sciences division announced in November that one of its first global strategic alliances was with Proteome Systems, the reaction of most analysts was 'Who?'"

"The deal between the information technology giant and the biotechnology start-up is also an interesting pointer to the future of biotechnology. Information technology has a rapidly increasing role in biotechnology.

The term coined to describe the link between information technologies and life sciences is bioinformatics. Around the world, bioinformatics has become a substantial biotechnology sub-sector, although it is in its infancy in Australia."

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.
