"Today's battle against disease is being fought inside supercomputers as much as in laboratories.

The convergence of biotechnology and computing at the cutting edge of biology has already bred dozens of new alliances and could pave the way for mergers between previously distinct industries.

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.
