"Dr Craig Venter, the US scientist who led the private effort to decode the human genome, has quit as boss of his company Celera Genomics."

""We are now at a critical juncture where my best contributions can be made in a scientific advisory role, allowing the rest of the organisation to continue Celera's progress toward becoming a successful pharmaceutical business.""

"More and more of what Celera did reflected its ongoing metamorphosis, and in a candid assessment of his best-known business, White conceded that "information will never be a multibillion dollar industry."

"The goal was always to become a user of our [own] data. Celera is in the transformation stage," he proclaimed, and not for the first time. "We have to get busy to retool to become a credible drug-discovery company." After all, that, they say, is where the real money is."

"Labeled the ``bad boy of genomics'' by Business Week for what it once described as his ``brash'' and ``self-promoting'' manner, Venter nonetheless has a loyal following both inside and outside the company. His resignation, announced before the company has found a successor, struck some as a sign of in-fighting at Celera, or as evidence that Venter has become tired of the job.

``You'd think if he were still very happy there he'd wait until they found the right person so that they'd have a smoother transition,'' said Noensie."

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.
