"By welcoming scientists who are not card-carrying human geneticists but who work in bioinformatics, medicine, model organisms, chip development, as well as those working in industry, ASHG members can find and develop "effective bridges that connect basic science to medicine," and span the "gulf" between universities and industry. "As the ranks of those in industry who are interested in human genetics increases, we have a lot to gain by finding ways of continuing to break bread with them and a lot to lose if we don't," Willard warned. "We have entered the age of genomic reductionism, where everything, it seems, has to have an explanation embedded in our genome sequence."

As people everywhere pause to reevaluate their lives in the coming months, Willard encouraged geneticists to do the same in their work. It is often there, he advised, that the greatest mysteries unravel. "It takes great intellectual discipline to put your pipette down and just think about the data to look for doors where none appear to exist.""

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.
