"The scientists conclude that the scientific paper Celera published about its experiment, an attempt to apply a fancy new technique to the problem of creating genetic maps, essentially didn't prove the case. After analyzing that paper in detail, the scientists said the company relied so heavily on a public database compiled by the Human Genome Project that it's impossible to know whether Celera's rapid-fire approach would have worked on its own."

""Celera's method was like taking satellite images of forests from around the world and then cutting them up and trying to put them back together," he told BBC News Online.

"As one bit of forest looks very much like another, it would be almost impossible not to mix the Siberian Forest with the Amazon Forest. But if you only cut up each forest at a time, the job would be much easier.""

"Sir Aaron Klug, a Nobel laureate and former president of the Royal Society who has independently assessed the study, said the new analysis showed Celera's published sequence of the human genome was not independent. Asked whether that amounted to cheating, Sir Aaron replied: "That's what some people say, yes. I would say that they didn't come clean as to what they had done."

"Celera is not taking the criticism lying down. According to Gene Myers, Celera's vice president of informatics research, Waterston's study is seriously flawed because it only simulated the reconstruction of one chromosome. Myers says Celera's success did not at all depend on the inclusion of the human genome project data. In fact, Myers's team has an unpublished study, in which they re-ran the entire genome sequence assembly without the public data."

"Former Celera President Craig Venter is quoted by the Associated Press on Tuesday saying that the paper is devoid of "substantive science" and represents "game-playing at the worst level in academics."

Celera did not respond to requests for comment."

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.
