"At a conference this month at the Airlie Center in Warrenton, Va., biologists tried to explore how the study of genomes might develop over the next 20 years and what tools might be needed. Central to their vision of the future is a thorough computerization of biology, made necessary by the vast computing power of the genome itself.

The task seems likely to change the nature of biological research, requiring teams of engineers, mathematicians, nanotechnologists and computer programmers, and farms of computers if not a national computer grid."

"Only a few brave biologists showed up today for a meeting designed to explore their common ground with mathematicians, physicists and chemists in the field of high-performance computing. The event was planned to look for "synergies across the areas," meeting organizer Julia Goodfellow told BioMedNet News, but biologists were still in the minority."

"Bioinformaticist Mark Swindells, one of the speakers, mused about "the challenge of how to do our talks so that everyone can understand the technology.""

"Knowledge gained from the sequencing of the human genome promises to change our lives. Powerful computing techniques have been used to acquire the knowledge gained so far, and still more powerful techniques will be required to fulfill the promises of genetically based drug design, medical diagnosis and treatment, and agricultural applications, among others. This issue of the IBM Systems Journal - and the companion issue of the IBM Journal of Research and Development - is devoted to papers on deep computing for life sciences. Included in this issue are papers that address associated biological, computational, and informational challenges."

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.
