"Oracle had a coming out party of sorts on Wednesday: It announced its dedication to focus more of its resources on capturing the life sciences market.

"Life sciences is special," Oracle CEO Larry Ellison said during a luncheon and series of talks at the OpenWorld conference here, which Oracle organized. "I think it will become the next big thing. The rate of discovery in my industry has gone down. [But] it's radically different in the life sciences industry where horizons are wide open. [There's] lots of new companies and new products. For very cold-hearted reasons we've decided to focus on life sciences.""

"The researchers seemed to agree that the software now available for analyzing genomic data simply isn't adequate."

Despite significant pushes to cater to the life sciences from the likes of IBM, Compaq, Oracle, and Sun, scientists have yet to see the benefits.

"We've got to do something about what's current out there in the public," said Suzannah Lewis, head of informatics at the Berkeley Drosophila Genome Project.

Her comments quickly became a common theme."

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.
